Introduction to RPN
Is there a really _short_ introduction to the classic 4 level stack RPN version (Woodstock/Spice) out there I can use for a beginner (who has a very limited attention span)...
The one on this site is rather over long for this purpose! Thanks Mike T. HP21, HP25, HP32E, HP33C, HP34C, HP10C, HP11C, HP12C, HP32S, HP22S

RE: Introduction to RPN
I would recommend the operator's manual for the hp35.
You can find a soft copy at: "https://literature.hpcalc.org"

RE: Introduction to RPN
In this site you can find a very nice introduction for RPN (reverse polish notation) for HP calculators http://holyjoe.org/hp/RPN_tutorial.pdf
It is 32 pages long, but.........in full colors with nice and practical examples for all system capabilities. Enjoy. Pedro

RE: Introduction to RPN
There are also emulators around that may help with the explanation.
The one here has all the internal registers exposed. http://www.teenix.org cheers Tony

RE: Introduction to RPN
Consider checking out any of the Grapevine Books: Easy Course in Programming... either the 11C/15C, 41, 42s ones will have a great explanation on RPN and the stack. Even if it is not your specific model, the examples of stack operation are explained well.

RE: Introduction to RPN
I agree in highly recommending the original HP35 manual. It is short/concise and to the point.
