OK, here are a few questions I have about the Prizm:1. Can it do fractions (mixed numbers and fractions, and converting these to/from decimal, improper fractions to/from mixed numbers)?
2. Does it show fractions, square roots, etc. the way they are shown in textbooks)?
3. What programming languages does it support?
4. Can it do percents?
5. How many programs are there for it? How active is the development?
6. Does everyone here that has one really like theirs?
7. How stable is it? Does it crash frequently or not?
8. Can it run programs made for fx-9860G?
1 ) Yes, it can work with fractions. The calculator doesn't handle them perfectly (odd decimals are occasionally not recognized), but it does a pretty good job for the most part.2 ) If you set the options properly, yes. You can also disable much of that.3 ) At present: BASIC, C, brainf*ck, and ASM. In the future, probably Lua, Java, C++, Groovy, Khavi Scripting Language (and derivatives), etc.4 ) Yes, although I can't remember how in-depth it is.5 ) There are a few programs out there. It's not a TI-84+, but there are people working on it.6 ) I like mine.7 ) I have *tried* to crash mine and it's extremely difficult, even in ASM. The worst that normally happens is that you reset the calc, which rarely causes data loss.8 ) BASIC programs, yes. C programs, not as easily.
C++ relies on the existence of the standard lib for the target platform. Since the Prizm doesn't have a fullly [implemented] standard library, not all C++ will compile for the Prizm.
2 ) If you set the options properly, yes. You can also disable much of that.
