The logic in the FX-180P version is, if there is a difference between X and ROUND(X), that saves one step.
The combination of FIX0, RND und NORM is very useful and it can be seen as a programming trick, because it
is not mentioned in any CASIO manual. A more obvious trick is using x^2 and SQRT, due to the missing ABS.
A size optimized program for the greatest common divisor, that makes use of it:

 01  x<->y
 02  =
 03  x^2
 04  SQRT
 05  x>0
 06  x<->y

Usage example: 861 - - 615 P1

Another one is Vi├Ęte's formula on the FX-180P:


 01  Min
 02  KAC
 03  2
 04  Kin1


 01  2
 02  Kin*1
 03  Kin+2
 04  Kout2
 05  SQRT
 06  Kin/1
 07  Kin2
 08  1
 09  M-
 10  MR
 11  x>0
 12  Kout1

Usage example: 10 P1 P2

or Fun with the Casio fx-180p / fx-3600p

Yes,of course. Nice to see that you like the programming on this very limited devices.
