On the recent version of the firmware, I tried to copy a program from the CAS view.
MYPROG is well displayed into the list of the programs onto the HP Prime.
BUT ... NEWPROG is not listed!
And if I want to create another program with the name NEWPROG, it is refused as there is already a program with this name.
I remember that this worked before.
Can you confirm it is a new bug of the latest firmware ?
Thanks in advance,

Cas "programs" are not really programs. They are variables that contain either a function or a sequence of commands to execture. However, they can be recalled, stored into, or deleted.
Hence they are really variables because they behave like a variable in every aspect. I don't think we will ever change them to show up in "programs". That is reserved for user created programs using the actual programming lanugage and not the CAS scripting engine. They have never show up under "programs".
Although I work for the HP calculator group as a head developer of the HP Prime, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

I did not speak about a CAS program.
I speak about a program but I did the NEWPROG:=MYPROG in the CAS view.
I can do it also in the HOME view, it will be the same, NEWPROG does not appear in the Program View.
I remember that it was the case before.
Thanks in advance.

In the Vars / Home / System menu, highlight Programs and press Help, for an explanation of its purpose and syntax. If your Prime's Vars / Home menu doesn't have a System submenu, or if that submenu is missing the Programs item, then you need to update your firmware.
Alternative approach: type "Programs" (with a capital P and without the quotation marks) but instead of pressing Enter, press Help. If the help screen for Programs doesn't appear, then you need to update your firmware.

If you do not have the Programs funciton, then, you most likely have a quite old version of the firmware and I suggest that you update (using the connectivity kit).
Programs returns the list of all programs in the program catalog
Programs("name") return the text of the specified program
Programs("name"):= string stores string as the text for the specified program.
