fx880p.jpg (39595 bytes)The fx-880P is the de luxe version of Casio's FX-850P, a comprehensive BASIC-programmable handheld calculator. The difference: the fx-880P comes with a whopping 32 kB RAM built in. Otherwise the two machines are identical.

The programming model of the fx-880P is demonstrated by the following example, computing the logarithm of the Gamma function:

10 INPUT X
20 G=1
30 IFX>5GOTO70
40 G=G*X
50 X=X+1
60 GOTO 30
70 S=1/1188/X/X-1/1680
80 S=S/X/X+1/1260
90 S=S/X/X-1/360
100 S=S/X/X+1/12
110 G=X*LNX-X+LN(2*PI/X/G/G)/2+S/X
120 PRINT G;EXPG
