Well, not so much, really. I know you will all forgive me when I tell you it's about BASIC! Laugh | :laugh:

Some while A long time ago I had an HP 95C 75Ccalculator for which I wrote what was at that time a fairly useful program, in the only supported language - HP BASIC. It was larger than would fit in the 24K available, so I had jump through all sorts of hoops to get it to fit - like using ASCII characters to represent some integers.

I no longer have the 95C 75C, and have some how lost the manual - unusual for me - but I do still have the code listings, but there are no code comments, as space did not permit. I do have one listing with scribbled comments on it, but they are sparse in the extreme. Now I am in semi-retirement, I thought I would rewrite it for my Android - and here's the problem.

I made heavy use of a built-in function ANGLE(X,Y) but I cannot remember precisely what it did. Bear in mind that I was stuck with one character variable names plus A0 through Z9. I presume it took two sides of a right triangle and returned an angle - but which one?

Suspicious | :suss: So, gentlemen, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is burrow away in your memories and let me know which two sides were used to provide the angle. Cool | :cool:

Edit: Me minds goin' - it was a 75C not a 95C! Blush | :O
