Some problems Ive been having with cas programs
OK, First of all, is there a way I can get the name of a cas function and have it appear in a program by selecting from a menu (without having to type the full name)? Same for on the runtime line.???
When I select cas vars from the mem menu, it just shows me the definition, not grabbing it to place it on the line like I can do with home functions.

Second problem is when I run a cas program, it seems to just show the definition, rather than run the program.....how do I run it?
Thx

I got the second problem solved....you must always put the () after the function name and then it runs. Otherwise, it just shows the definition....though I don't know what the latter serves.

Try Vars>CAS>Program instead of the mem menu.

Well, as I mentioned in a few other places the CAS is a functional CAS. Everything is an object. When you just call the object directly by name (including a function which is an object/variable) you get the content back.

There are lots of commands that let you operate directly on the content of functions rather then evaluating them.

RE: Some problems Ive been having with cas programs
First, thanks Didier, that solves it for me!
Second, Tim, I haven't time right now, but it occurred to me that possibly this might allow macro type text substitution....I'll have to experiment with this....might have it's uses. Thx.
