RE: (PC-1211) Engineering format
Your nifty solution reminds me of the decimal places and scientific display DEF assignments I've used in the past on my Sharp PC-1350 in the 80s:

Code:
' <expr> DEF-S scientific notation with #=? decimal places
' <expr> DEF-D fixed notation with #=? decimal places, may cause error if value exceeds 1E10

1 "S" AREAD X: USING: INPUT "#=";O: PRINT USING LEFT$("##.#########", O+3)+"^";X: END
2 "D" AREAD X: USING: INPUT "#=";O: PRINT USING "###########."+LEFT$("#########", O);X: END

Works on other Sharp PC, but unfortunately not on the PC-1211. Allows the output to be used as an answer to continue calculations.

One of the reasons I kept using the Sharp pocket computers is because it was so easy to add features. Modern advanced calculators like the wonderful HP Prime have everything already built-in of course Smile
