Getting Started

Sample program

    Here's a simple example. It will display the sum and difference of two numbers. Press New, then press...

ReadRead a number from the keypad into the register
Store AStore the contents of the register in bucket A
ReadRead another number from the keypad into the register
Store BStore the contents of the register in bucket B
Load ACopy the contents of bucket A to the register
Add BAdd the contents of bucket B to the contents of the register
WriteWrite the contents of the register to the display
Load ACopy the contents of bucket A to the register
Sub BAdd the contents of bucket B to the contents of the register
WriteWrite the contents of the register to the display
EndStop execution when you get here

    Key point: Every operation uses the register!

Running it

    You have several options for running your program...

RunRun the program, stopping only for Read statements. Continue running when the user presses Enter on the keypad.
StepRun the program one line at a time. Press Step after each instruction. A great way to learn! Watch the register and watch the buckets!
StopStop the program wherever it happens to be. The program will remain in the code display.
