PPL is the progrmaming language used in the HP Prime.

RPL is the programming language used in the HP 28, 48, 49 and 50 series calculators.

It is far easier and clear to reply with how RPL and PPL are similar.

The answer to that is they are both programming languages for HP Calculators. In virtually all other ways they are different, due to the fundamentally different nature of the calculators they are in.

One is not "better" than the other, they are simply very different languges for very different machines.

I have a prime and the PPL looks very similiar to the basic language on a TI-84, RPN is the programming language for HPs Reverse Polish Notation Calculators
