Comment The first calculator with color display which I ever owned!!
To do the obvious - calculations - press MENU and 1 to enter the "Run-Matrix" mode.
Additional PC-Software allows to view the calculator's display on the PC.
When the USB-cable is connected the calculator's internal memory can be made visible on the host PC (choose the according option on the calculator). In this mode additional programs can be copied to the calculator.
When I first used the calculator I downloaded a software update from the Casio Website. The 11 MByte file contained a Windows installer program which required administrator rights to run. It did not install anything on the PC but it did update the calculator in an easy step-by-step fashion. New software version is now 01.02.0200.
I could not figure out what the difference between the fx-CG10 and fx-CG20 is.
Programs can be stored in text format and transferred to a PC. Here's the text program I used to calculate the performance index. Note that "Lbl", "If", "Then" etc. are keywords which must be selected from the program menu rather than being typed explicitly.
Lbl 1
If L>0
Then Goto 1
ln X->X
sin X->X
