Could you tell us where to get the Japanese PDF? It would be good to have a copy of the original manual as I learn Japanese.

Whilst looking for that manual (above - couldn’t find it right now) I found these pages which should be of interest to ‘850 owners:

RE: Sharp PC-G850VS
Known bug in Basic: LCOPY

One to add to the book perhaps to page 205 where LCOPY is explained.

It's not a statement/something you'd normally have in a program, but you can ... and it does crash the system completely, you'll need a hard reset to get out of this one.

Moral of the bug is: don't add it to a program line Big Grin

RE: Sharp PC-G850VS
I'm interested in learning more about the Turbo mode that has been mentioned here. I've done some searching to see how to accomplish this, but so far I haven't found anything, perhaps because my searches have been in English.

I've been playing around with my PC-G850VS, thanks to Jack's excellent manual, and it's been a lot of fun. In a way, it feels like this device was designed for the purposes of education, with the simplified way that only one compiled C program can be held in memory, the implementation of the CASL/COMET system, etc. Does anyone know more about the target demographic for this device?

You need to replace the 8 MHz resonator to a higher value. To have no complications with data transfer, it would be practical to use 16 or 32 MHz and setting the baud rate to the half or quarter.

RE: Sharp PC-G850VS
Because of this thread and the englsh manual, i just grab an almost new VS specimen from Japan.

I'm playing with it and so far, a really pleasure to use.

One thing I notice is that you can choose to use postfix or prefix for sqr, cur, etc.

Thanks folks!

Cheers

JL

Thanks for all your work on this English manual! It's actually how I came to find this forum. I figured I'd register to say thanks.

Do you mind me asking what was the price of your VS?

This site also includes a lot of sample programs each of which have their own source code. Of particular interest to me is an implementation of Koi-Koi.

cheers!
