The Owner's Manual even included on how to program with Finding the Factorial Number Program as an Example.
I'm surprised that this model came with full Conditional Test.

Consider that the HP-25 was originally planned to be a non-programmable advanced scientific model. By including programmability, the engineers used up almost every word of code storage space (2048 microinstructions). There was no room to include additional features without removing something else.
