Can the HP Prime automatically run a program on boot?
« on: March 16, 2015, 04:16:40 am »
The HP 48g series allowed a program to be run automatically when the calculator cold boots—it runs the program in the home directory named STARTUP. I used this feature on my HP 50g to set the KEYTIME variable so that it would not interfere with fast keystrokes, as well as to display a prompt with the current battery level (using a third-party library function).

Can the HP Prime be set up to automatically run a program on a cold boot? If so, what should the program be named?

A programmer at heart.

as is know there is no way to run a program on start up, but i'm not that familiar with the hp prime :(
I'm sorry if i might make some mistakes, I'm German so English isn't my first language. Please correct me :)

No, there is no similar capability.

Granted, you have no need or ability to change key behavior - it just works. You also have the battery info displayed on screen at all times so...
