Martin - Where is the full description on the ftp site, if not part of the official Prime documentation, which I understand to mean the docs that come with the virtual Prime?

The manuals in [] are (should be) the same as those included when you install the virtual Prime.

Yes, it is in the latest version of the manual - what I meant is that the innocent users goes first to HP's main and then their calculator web site and downloads the manual(s) from that site. He will find a "User's Manual" and a "User's Manual Phase 2" (whatever Phase 2 means stays obscure) and these are old manuals which do not describe the options of having lists as parameters to the INPUT function.

The virtual calculator seems to come with the manual as it is found on the ftp site (probabably the latest version) but I would not assume that everybody finds that manual. I think it should be made clear which manual goes with which firmware so that the average, non-engineer geek and kid can easily find out which manual fits his calculator.


Thanks for clarifying Martin, I thought you were referring to additional docs.

Tim/Cyrille - I just checked and indeed the manuals online from the main Prime webpage "Learning Tools" tab has links to:

Prime User Guide - p/n NW280-2001, Edition 1, dated July 2013

Prime Quick Start Guide - p/n NW280-1001, Edition 1, dated May 2013

Suggest those responsible for keeping such things updated be sacked.

Since the "current" versions (released with f/w in Dec) are now several months old, maybe its best to replace the old ones when the next version is released, so that you don't have to ask them to do their job more than once within a few months.

Of course anyone getting the updated f/w gets the latest docs, but 1. many folks never even figure that out, and 2. many other folks seeking info will look first on the website and never think to dig further, since after all, this is where one should expect to find them. I go to HP's various websites daily for drivers and docs, and they generally are up to date.
