Comparison of Python on Various Calculators?
Is there a good comparison of Python on handheld calculators somewhere? One that compares speed, amount of RAM available, features, etc.? If so, where? I've looked and can't find one.

...other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, what did you think of the play?

There are such comparisons on tiplanet.org, but only in French.

Thanks! French is not a problem for me.

And any opinion, summarize, etc...?! Because the French is not a problem for the Google Translate, but the decision about these Python stuffz are problem for me...

There are tradeoffs to be made. By far the fastest calculator for running Python is the Numworks. Unfortunately, it has very limited memory capacity compared to the others. If you need to run large programs or programs with a lot of data, it's not a good one for you. If you need a lot of pre-written libraries, you can check those figures, too. It all depends on your needs as to which is the best calculator for you.

So, this MicroPython 1.9.4 HERE is not that Python... Any reference?

Thanks,

The problem is that no calculator natively implements the entire Micro Python language. The TI Nspire can run full Micro Python if you use ndless on it first but the latest Nspire models can't run ndless yet.

Tell me, why are you worried about Python? I like CBasic by Sentaro21, which didn't fool me like HP with its 50g, 39gjj, 39gs etc business projects. Over the past 20 years, hewlett-packard has become a record holder for cheating potential users.

I am working now on mechanical engineering educational materials, mainly examples in various fields, but all of them numerical examples. I am looking for a good programming language which easy to learn and easy implement numerical methids in that language.

The CASIOs are cheap calculators, available in Europe and Python is portable between desktop PCs and handheld calculators. Thats why I am interested.

If user defined functions and more than 1 character length variable names are supported, this BASIC will be OK. Sometimes I think the TI-89 will be better than CASIO, but the cost of the real calculator is very important. Now I use a TI-30X Pro Mathprint and a HP 39GII emulator.
