Questions

Which Calculator Brand is the best?

Each calculator has its own good point and its own bad points. A Ti-82/85 for example is very fast and is used by many schools, but it is hard to use. Ti-92 is awesome but they don't allow them during most standardised exams. HP-48 is very powerful, but it is probably the hardest to use out of all the calculator on the market. The Casio is very easy to use (recent ones have icon menu in them), and it is powerful too. Casio calculators are generally not as good as Ti-82 in term of speed, but they both have the same functionality. It is up to you to decide what you want and what you don't want.

When are you going to post my program?

I will post ALL programs sent into me, if they work, but it may take a little while for me to post them...

Can I upgrade my ram for the Casio?

No...

Does Casio have a asm programming environment like Z-shell for the Ti(s)?

Unfortunately the only environment we have is the current one we see in Casio's PRGM mode/Editor mode. I hope Casio implements new more efficient environments in the future....

I have a question regarding Casio's Palmtop.

I can not help those of you with Casio's Palmtop questions because I never owned one. Sorry!

Where is the Range function in the cfx-9850 and cfx-9950?

The Range function is now called ViewWindow in the newer Casio calculators. So you should now use ViewWindow.

Where is Mcl? I can't find it on my new cfx-9850, though I looked everywhere!

There is no longer a command called Mcl in the newer calculators. However you can type: 0->A~Z This command line does the same thing as Mcl...

A[3] or A[7] these give me syntax error on my cfx-9850 or cfx-9950.

Casio took out the Array function, so if you own a cfx-9850 or cfx-9950 you shouldn't attempt to program programs with the array functions in them. Unless of course you can program the thing to make it compatible with your new calculator.

Why are there no action packed programs for fx7700 and cfx-9800?

Since Casio never implemented "Getkey" command it is impossible to feed live data while the program is running, making games such as Tetris or Space Invaders impossible to make. However on the new cfx-9850G and cfx-9950G the "Getkey" command is implemented, so you can expect some action packed game on cfx-9850G model.

Can I make an anti-reset program?

It is impossible to create a anti reset program for the Casio calculator due to it's lack of flexibility in the programming language... However it is quite possible to create a program which will fake the reset.The fake reset program can simply consist of print commands which makes the calculator display the false amount of memory used and false amount of memory free....

Is there a virus for the Casio calculator?

Yes, unfortunately there is... You got to have a cable to get it though.

I made a cool program and I want to get it posted on in this archive, what could I do?

First type out the program in a text editor, (some characters used in the Casio calculator are impossible to reproduce, so for those unique characters create an arbitrary reference) and send it to me through e-mail, and I will post it when I have some free time.

Is there a good book to start learning Casio calculator programming language?

No, there are none. Actually a few days of experimenting can enable you to create simple programs. The language is basically simple basics. If you enter some programs, you'll figure it out very fast. You can use the tutorials as well.

How can I add a link to this site?

Send me the link and I'll check it out. I'll add it to the site if you do the same thing.

I don't have the manual for a Casio calculator. Where can I get one?

I don't know. Try to contact Casio.

I found a bug in a program. What could I do?

You can send the bug report to me or to the author.
