Prime variable assignation in ppl
HI, I apologise if this is a really silly question, but in the Rollmany example program in the user guide (page 454) there appears to be assignment carried out by a triangle symbol (pointing to the right).

I have not been able to enter this into the Prime. Does anyone know how to do this?
The line below is one of the Rollmany program lines in question:

L2(roll)+1L2(roll);

Many thanks for any help.

maybe the Store Key ? (blue shift EEX)

(don't have a Prime yet)

Yes. It is the Sto Key (which does have the little triangle on the key itself).

Being a long time HP RPN/RPL user I'm finding the mindset switch difficult.

Many thanks!!

You can also rewrite as

L2(roll):=L2(roll)+1;

Thanks Patrice. I was going to try that if unable to find the way to enter the triangle.
Appreciate the help.
