RE: HP50g small tips and trick
I needed an algorithm to get the digits of an integer in any base. This was as fast as I could do easily.

Input: N, P (the number and base respectively)

<< -> N P <<
{} WHILE N REPEAT
N P MOD +
N P / FLOOR
'N STO
END >>

I did try using STO+ to generate the list and some playing around with LASTX but none were faster.

I can be a little faster by just leaving the remainders on the stack then using DEPTH and ->LIST to pick up the result, but that requires (I think) an empty stack at the beginning which makes it less easy to use the routine in other programs.
