    Re: Calculators revisited (TI-86, HP 48gx)
    From: Guillaume Lancelin

    I, too, made a short program for my TI-82, but it's a bit like yours: only
    usable by me... And I still need an almanach and some "pre-calculations"
    (position of sun, correction of height, etc) before using it. I made it
    just to avoid typing long expressions (source of fatal syntax errors) each
    time I want to compute a position.
    Would you mind to send a quick flowchart of your program so that I can
    compare, and may be upgrade mine?
