Ah, great – so now there's RCL arithmetics for the 41, at last. As well as a number of new tests. Here the QRG says that ?X> is a "greater than X" test, or ?0< is a "less than zero" test. However, the command name says exactly the opposite: if 0<X then X is greater than zero, not less. This would mean that for instance ?X< 01 actually tests if X > R01. ?!?

Maybe I already said it some time ago when this display mode has been discussed here, but I still think that FIXALL is a misleading name for this command: the basic feature of this mode is that the number of digits is not fixed at all. I'd suggest something like FLOAT. Or maybe UNFIX. ;-)

BTW I would love to have the Y-related tests also in the 34s. Testing a condition while leaving X unchanged is a very handy feature in many situations.
