Depends on the calculator I suppose......Usually on most small calculators, I guess the program is burned into ROM somwhere on the board

I chose a simple thing to xplain my question


A calculator uses a board and numbers and a screen correct?

Well where does the board keep its program to read the button_*_down and button_5_down and sumbit data screen ino to the screen

It says krappykoder is the creator of this thread, yet I see Fordy as the first post in this thread. Is that just me, or did he delete the first post s/he made?

A calculator has a chip on board that can store data (probably represented as a simple stack of floating point numbers) in the form of erasable memory. However, I believe the program itself is nonexistant, rather actual logic gates are used to process the data, hence there is probably no "CPU". Correct me if I'm wrong though...

Yes. I was expecting a thread about Doritos, which are obviously
not derived from potatos.
