fx6300g.jpg (24158 bytes)The fx-6300G is an older model graphical calculator by Casio. It has an interesting display consisting of multiple display areas; only part of the display is used for graphing purposes.

Although it has been discontinued, the calculator's small size and pleasant display/keyboard layout still make it a favored choice by many. Its 400-byte program memory is sufficient to store even some complex applications; the programming model provides for conditional execution, loops, and subroutines. This programming model is very similar to that used in later Casio graphical models, such as the CFX-9800G.

The program example here, another implementation of my favorite the Gamma function, demonstrates many aspects of this machine's programming model. This program leaves about half the calculator's program memory unused.

"X=":? -> X:1 -> Y:Lbl 1:X >= 0 => Goto 2:
XY -> Y:X+1 -> X:Goto 1:Lbl 2:
e(ln ((1+(76.18009172+9.5E-9)/(X+1)
  √(2π)/X)+(X+.5)× ln (X+5.5)-X-5.5)/Y
