Hi, Joe:

(09-13-2018 02:17 PM)Joe Horn Wrote:  [...]there will be three categories, each with a Most Elegant winner: HP-41CX RPN, RPL (any model), and HP PPL (Prime).

Not that I intend to attend HHC 2018 or enter any of its Programming Contests, but I would really appreciate it if you or someone else sufficiently qualified could give me some rationale or explanation on why RPN, RPL and HP PPL are admitted languages but the very capable and advanced HP-71B BASIC language is not (let alone HP-71B FORTH).

Why is that ? Is the HP-71B not considered a genuine classic calculator of HP's golden age ? Aren't there any HP fans out there using and programming the HP-71B anymore ? No love for the poor beastie ?

Why the blatant discrimination ? I wouldn't mind it if it were admitted and yet no one would submit an entry coded in its language, but the mere fact that it's not even considered admissible seems to reek of arbitrary, unfair discrimination or worse, sheer contempt.

Regards.
V.
