Switching from HP 39gs to HP Prime Graphic Calculator

HP Prime Graphic Calculator

dear all,

 

actually i'm using HP 39gs Graphic Calculator, but i would switch to HP Prime Graphic Calculator. Both of them are programmable calculators (it means that i did some routines to resolve typical engineering problems). Some of you can tell me if programs developed for HP 39gs can be transferred to Prime Graphic Calculator without any change?

 

thanks

 

Nicola

Switching from HP 39gs to HP Prime Graphic Calculator

Hi!, @FreeStyle1971 :

There is no compatibility between them in programming and it is not possible to migrate any data.

Kind Regards !.
Have a nice day !.

Hi!, @Freestyle1971 :

It is a language based on PASCAL, although it has differences in internal commands and programming.

Kind Regards !.

Switching from HP 39gs to HP Prime Graphic Calculator

Hi,

 

The HP Prime programming language has similarities with that of the 39gs (the Prime evolved from the 39/40 series), however as the functionality has vastly expanded from the 39gs to the Prime the programming language also has evolved somewhat.

 

For example there are more functions, there is CAS and some functions have changed (e.g. may have more inputs).

 

So you will probably have to adapt the programs from the 39gs somewhat to work on the Prime - but if you are proficient in programming the 39gs then you should be able to adapt to the Prime programming language.

 

You can learn a lot about the Prime here:

Regards.
