# Input String For Two Or Three Input Values - HP 49g+ User Manual

Graphing calculator.

This can be used to execute at once any sub-program called from within a
main program. Examples of the application of @@SST@ will be shown later.
Fixing the program
The only possible explanation for the failure of the program to produce a
numerical result seems to be the lack of the command
algebraic expression '2*a^2+3'.
missing EVAL function. The program, after editing, should read as follows:
"Enter a: " {" :a: " {2 0} V } INPUT
«
OBJ→ → a
Store it again in variable FUNCa, and run the program again with a = 2.
This time, the result is 11, i.e., 2*2

## Input string for two or three input values

In this section we will create a sub-directory, within the directory HOME, to
hold examples of input strings for one, two, and three input data values.
These will be generic input strings that can be incorporated in any future
program, taking care of changing the variable names according to the needs
of each program.
Let's get started by creating a sub-directory called PTRICKS (Programming
TRICKS) to hold programming tidbits that we can later borrow from to use in
more complex programming exercises. To create the sub-directory, first make
sure that you move to the HOME directory. Within the HOME directory, use
the following keystrokes to create the sub-directory PTRICKS:

A program may have more than 3 input data values. When using input
strings we want to limit the number of input data values to 5 at a time for the
simple reason that, in general, we have visible only 7 stack levels. If we use
Let's edit the program by adding the
