pb100.jpg (28559 bytes)One of the simplest Casio BASIC programmable calculators ever made, the PB-100 is a close relative of the FX-700P.

The PB-100's programming model is demonstrated here by my favorite example, the Gamma function.

20 G=1
30 IF X>5 THEN 70
40 G=G*X
50 X=X+1
60 GOTO 30
70 G=X*LN X-X+LN (SQR (2*π/X)/G)
80 PRINT G+((((1/99/X/X-1/140)/X/X+1/105)/X/X-1/30)/X/X+1)/12/X
