RE: HP41: Formula Evaluation ROM
I agree with you Angel. When RPN programmable calculators were kings, programming expressions in RPN (and using smart tricks to save intermediate results) was THE way to go. Hardly anyone complained. But after over 35 years of programming highlevel languages (Basic, Pascal, C, C++, Matlab, R, Python, Perl, PHP, Java, Javascript, and so on) where we use algebraiclike expressions that are easy to read (and easy to fix or edit), I am beginning to lose adoration with using RPN to code long and/or numerous expressions.
Ironically RPL calculators allow you to cheat and EVALuate algebraic expressions enclosed in singlequote strings. It's time to bring RPN engines to par with RPL. So your solution is most welcome. Namir
