PS My cat pounces on whatever calc I have out there... if she thinks I want to use it.

I have to confess one thing... yesterday I have been coding the 15C, was a long time I didn't do that and I found the coding of keys extremely cumbersome. Also when entering whatever constant, I see one line of code sucked for every single digit. I remember when I was a student, I had all constants stored into variables to avoid this. By comparison, the 35s is really another generation and I got used to it very quickly.

The 41C was already in another class, even before the 15C.

If you look at the 15C Advanced Functions Handbook, it at least touches on the subject of the numerical accuracy of the mathematical routines it uses. In fact, I believe there was a chapter devoted to it.

This in my view indicates the level of care and concern the designers had in describing the limitations of the calculations to the owner. I never did get that feeling from the 35S manual.

Please remember that person doen't like reading. He wants to get it pre-chewed by us (like Reader's Digest, in a way).

No no no... I loved that article... read the whole darn thing (~very cool). Well, I had to do something while I drank my coffee...
