many cases, and less well in some other cases. If some of the
information looks oddly formatted, the reason is probably the automatic

Here is a list of sources which have been used.
- Programming in System RPL by Eduardo Kalinowski
- This book has been a major source for the database.
The entire book has been reverse-engineered using pdftotext and then a
variety of Emacs and Perl programs to extract and format the reference
part of the book.
- CAS Documentation Draft by Bernard Parisse
- Bernard Parisse has kindly sent me a file with draft documentation
about most CAS entries which is the basis of the CAS chapter. This
covers both code derived from Erable (written by Bernard) and from
ALG48 (by Mika Heiskanen and Claude-Nicolas Fiechter). The
documentation is not complete, and not entirely up-to-date. However,
the information given should be accurate.
- entries.srt by Mika Heiskanen
- Mika's really useful collection of entry description has been used to
double-check the information derived from Eduardo's book.
- ML entry descriptions by Peter Geelhoed
- Peter Geelhoed created the initial version of the ML section for this
- HP48/49 entry cross-reference by Joe Horn
- This document has been used to make a list of entries for the HP49 in
the first place, and to add and double-check addresses for both calculators.
- Various posts on
- A number of post on
comp.sys.hp48 have documented a set of entry
points, for example the Graphical Toolbox (Cyrille de Brebisson), the
Editor related entries (myself) and other stuff.
- Supported entry lists from HP
- HP has published lists of supported entries for all calculators in the
database. The lists generally only contain names and addresses, no
- Further contributions
- Denis Martinez, Alberto Zamora Oyarce, Wolfgang Rautenberg, Michael de
Coninck, Christoph Giesselink, Martin Lang, Piotr Kowalewski, Lilian
Pigallio and in particular Jean-Yves Avenard have also contributed
information about various entry points and/or have replied to my
questions about different aspects related to entries.
