Send( and Get( are meant to be used with CBL/CBR systems (data probes), not with other calculators. To transfer data between calculators, use GetCalc(. It works like this:
  • The sending calculator is put into a low-power mode. That means it shouldn't be actively calculating something or running a program, or if it is running a program, that it's at a Pause, Input, or similar state. Otherwise, the transfer won't work.
  • The receiving calculator calls GetCalc(<variable>. If <variable> exists on the sending calculator, it will be copied to the receiving calculator, overwriting any previous variable of the same name. If it doesn't work, it'll give up immediately, no waiting.
You can only transfer the variable types you can use DelVar on, so it works for reals, lists, matrices, strings, and so on.
