Using the editing functions BEGIN, END, COPY, CUT and PASTE
To facilitate editing, whether with the Equation Writer or on the stack, the
calculator provides five editing functions, BEGIN, END, COPY, CUT and PASTE,
activated by combining the right-shift key (‚) with keys (2,1), (2,2), (3,1),
(3,2), and (3,3), respectively. These keys are located in the leftmost part of

marks the ending of a string of characters for editing
COPY: copies the string of characters selected by BEGIN and END
CUT:
cuts the string of characters selected by BEGIN and END
PASTE: pastes a string of characters, previously copied or cut, into the current
cursor position
