The question and answer on this page is based on inquiries I recieved
throgh e-mail...I have posted my reply with the question so as to avoid
duplicate questions...please take your time to read through this short
FAQ to see if your question is answered.
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 dont allow them during IB/AP/or most
standarized exams. HP-48 is very very 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
powrful 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 dont want.
When are you going to post my program?
Unfortunatly my free time decreased ever since I entered college... I
"will"post ALL programs sent into me.. but it may take a little while
for me to post them..
Can I upgrade my ram for the casio?
Does Casio have a asm programming enviroment like Z-shell for the Ti(s)?
Unfortunatly the only enviroment we have is the current one we see in
Casio's PRGM mode/Editor mode. I hope Casio implements new more
efficient enviroments 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.
How do I use Getkey?
Getkey is a function that reports back the Key code the user pushed.
For example if you push EXE GetKey will return back the code 31, which
happens to be the key code for EXE. You can check out the values of
each key by using the following code:
Execute the above program and try pushing different keys on your
calculator you should get back the KeyCode for the key you pushed.
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 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
A or A these kinda thing gives me syntax error on my cfx-9850
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 copatible with your new calc.
What can I do with these programs?
Use the programs to your benefit...butyou must agree to use
em at your own risk...thus the programers are not responsible
for any unwanted effects.
Why are there no action packed programs for fx7700 and cfx-9800?
SInce Casio never implemented "get key" command it is
impossible to feed live data while the program is
running, making games such as tetris or 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 a anti-reset program?
well technically, it is "impossible" to create a per se "anti reset
program" for the casio calc. 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
simplyconsist of print commands which makes the calc. display the
false amount of memory used and false amount of memory free....
Is there a virus for the casio calc?
yes, unfortunately there is...
I made a cool program and I want to get it posted on in this archive,
what could I
first type out the program in a text editor, (some chracters
used in the casio calc are impossible to reproduce, so for
those unqiue characters create a arbiturary 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 calc programming
no there are none, actually a few days of experimenting can
enable you to create simple programs....the language is basically
simple basics. (thus the programs tend to become spaggehti codes)
I want to add a link to your page...can I?
go right ahead!
I don't have the manual for the casio calc where can I get one?
I do not have em' but you can try asking one of the people at
how long did it take you to collect all these programs?
Since 1994! Actually I started posting my own programs since Casio(c) didn't
even have their homepage when Texas Instrument(c) did. The people on the
internet started sharing their programs with me and the archive grew..
what do you need more of? mathematics or creativity?
In case of Casio Calc, I'd say creativity.
I found a bug in one of the programs what could I do?
either send me the notice or the programmer if his e-mail address is
