The story behind your 34S is astounding; yes, it certainly has not been exposed to the extent I would have guessed.

I woke up several times over night thinking of the 34S team running around in Australia and Germany seeking algorithm books, and also recalling my own attempts to make my own Newton routine faster. Sometimes I would simple-graph the function on the HP41C loop printer and count the roots.

Does the user FIX setting in any way affect the actual step length used?

PS: Pauli, is there any way you can test how many loops it takes to calculate the square-root of say 1234567 on the 34S? Is the step length fixed or does it reduce itself closer to convergence (i.e. sign change)? And how did it calculate the initial guess?
