object types are described below.

To see the objects stored in memory you can use the FILES function
( „¡). The screen shows the HOME directory with at least four
directories, namely, GRPHS, MPFIT, MATRX, and TRIANG.
Additional directories can be viewed by moving the cursor downwards in the
directory tree. Or you can move the cursor upwards to select a memory port.
