No RPL?

RE: No RPL?
Since the calculator is directly aimed towards students, RPL would have been too hard to learn for younger crowds (which is the same reason why so few TI-84 Plus programmers bothered about Z80 assembly and FastRPL), so they decided to go with an higher-level language. The calc is competing directly against many TI and Casio models for students (CAS and non-CAS), they decided to choose a language that looks similar to TI and Casio Basic.

There is some limited RPN support in non-CAS mode, though. I wonder if RPN can be used inside HP PPL programs? I think it wouldn't hurt to have both SysRPL and HP PPL being supported in future firmware updates, though, and with higher RPN support, to satisfy both students and professionals.
