Indeed. I sort of deleted that from my memory... Luckily those op-functions were rarely needed, with the exception maybe of some statistics functions.

I don't know. I never really got to like the Hp41. "XEQ" "ALPHA" letter letter letter are a lot of key presses to invoke a function... And if you couldnt remember "letter letter letter" of a rarely used function you could toggle through the catalog for the better part of an afternoon. This is not exactly the kind of user interface one would call "ergonomic".
