Love 'em.  Wouldn't use anything else.  I think I heard somewhere that
HP isn't making them any more; is this right?  Maybe I should go out
and buy some up as spares, just in case.

   Postfix languages don't have variables.  Values are simply placed on the
   stack and operated on.  All functions are just operations on a stack.

Hey, even HP calculators have variables (STO and RCL).
