RE: Load a Photo Yes/No?
My review of HP Prime, take two:
Under UNITS / (G) Angle, I get a peculiar menu: 1 tr ;; time resolved angular displacement? Or what is this? 2 3 4 gon 5 arcmin 6 arcs 7 rad 8 deg 9 grad How, by example, is 'tr' used? gon = gradian = grad, yes? Is gon and grad identical then? Okay, we can thus convert to/from grad in this manner. You see 'mils' under Length, not under Angular Measurement. milsangle is used in highly advanced military and astronomical, and even radio tracking, work, of extreme precision, and other uses. Where I am coming from with a "universal Catelogue" of commands, functions, etc., is what many of us would hope to be able to do while in Programming Mode: to be able to use the power we see our Calculator exert, between applications, in a way that "crosses over" those applications to produce new tasks. Or simply put: to be allowed to go into Programming, set Graphics Screen, have access to graphic drawing primitives (line, circle, point), and be expected to use any data type supported by the Calculator, Lists, Matrices, Units, Constants all included of course. Work our own formulas/algorithms, and then apply those fantastic mathematical routines we have access to in Numericaland/orCAS modes to that userProgramgenerated data! By not seeing these things in that Catalog listing, is suggesting that Programming has been "dumbed down"; restricted to work only through a locked applications own environment... Grrr. We can use a given Application to generate data. That data is retained. Then Program algorithms that read that data... but do we have access to all of the mathematical routines in numerical/plotting modes? This is where I get confused and frustrated that they limit things still! I was hoping there is / will be / a way to bridge that. and just where is the GeoGebralike constructs? Ok Ok. I'm kidding. I think. This is how we get ourselves to explore deeper into things... and no doubt, as appropriate, corrections offered.
