OK, here is a first version with a rough initial guess. At the X=? prompt simply enter a negative value if you want to compute the quantile for that probabily. If you already have entered the previous C program, simply add lines C010 and C011 and continue with line C054.

Usage: At the X=? prompt enter the negative probability for which you want the Chi² quantile. The program will then display two estimates in Y and X (the previous and the current), so that you can see the iteration converge. Pressing R/S yields the next approximation.

[XEQ] C [ENTER]             J=?

Enter degrees of freedom
    10  [R/S]               X=?

Enter negative probability
  -0,95 [R/S]               11,176989523

        [R/S]               15,310270784

        [R/S]               17,970799176

        [R/S]               18,305703292

If 18,307 is sufficiently accurate you may stop here.
Otherwise continue:

        [R/S]               18,307038039

        [R/S]               18,307038054

When the two approximations are displayed you may also enter your own guess before pressing R/S, and the approximation will continue with this value.

NB: This program is not very sophisticated, and it does not match what's inside the 34s. For instance, the latter evaluates CDFs for large x via P(x) = 1–Q(x), and also the quantile function has a much, much better initial guess. It took me quite a while to get the guess within <10% of the true value. ;-) For instance, the first guess for the case above is 18,2..., compared to the exact value 18,307...

Some time ago I wrote 35s/41C programs for the Normal distribution. They evaluate the PDF, one- and two-sided CDFs and also one- and two-sided quantiles with several tweaks to ensure best possible accuracy and efficiency. But these are about three times the size of the small Chi² progam posted above.
