Can't make format() work
In examples I've seen

format(9.3456,"s3")

should show 9.35 in algebraic mode but All I get is syntax error. Since format is in lower case, I also tried

CAS.format(9.3456,"s3")

with the same result. How do you use the format function? Also, how do I set fixed decimal mode from an HPPL program?

RE: Can't make format() work
It needs CAS(format(9.3456,"s3")), not CAS.format.
Just checked and its still OK on the new release on Android.
