I bought one of these when I was at school in the early '80s and this string display was the most annoying feature by far. On the 501P/601P models the print command would display and pause, requiring the user to press EXE (or whatever) to continue. But if the print command was followed by a semi-colon, the calc would continue without waiting for the user acknowledgment. This was very handy for displaying progress through a loop while still being able to display results to the user at the end so they could be written down.

The 4000P lost the semi-colon capability which was very annoying to me at the time. (Now I realise Casio were just preparing me for a lifetime of disappointment as tech companies take away features for no good reason!) ;-)
