For example the "R" key will take the square root of the number on the stack. If you press "Caps Lock" then "R" it will do X squared, or if you press "Ctrl" then "R" it will take the X'th root of the number in Y, where X is the number in stack level 1 and Y is the number in stack level 2. Etc. Once you get used to it, it is pretty easy. As for the double arrow brackets "<< >>" you press the "Ctrl" key then the Plus key "+" on your keyboard. The curly braces {} are accessed by pressing "Caps Lock" and Plus "+". After you figure out how to decipher the graphical image it turns out to be a pretty useful reference. Also note that the "Alpha" mode takes a bit of getting used to. Use the "Tab" key to cycle through the three way Alpha modes. The first press of "Tab" puts you into "UPPER CASE" alpha mode, the second press of "Tab" puts you into "lower case" alpha mode, and the third press of "Tab" turns alpha mode off again. I hope that someday they add mouse support for clicking on the keys directly like most other desktop simulators, but for now it DOES have utility and even though it is a bit clumsy I have grown quite fond of the Emulator myself.
