Casio fx-180P
An archetypical programmable calculator from Casio, the fx-180P has many of the distinguishing features found in the vast majority of non-graphing programmable Casio calculators. 38 merged program steps, 6 registers plus one "independent" memory, a simple programming model that nevertheless provides for conditional execution, and an uncluttered keyboard offering a comprehensive set of scientific and statistical functions characterize this model and many of its successors.
38 program steps is not a heck of a lot, but thanks to the merged programming model, it is sufficiently large for a quality implementation of my favorite programming example, the Gamma function. The program below uses the Lanczos-approximation to compute the logarithm of the Gamma function to (typically) 10 digits of precision for all positive arguments.
