This is the menu that appears the first time you start Keypad mode. It will show up in a vertical window on the right side of your screen. Above this menu is the traditional Calc stack display. On a 24-line screen you will be able to see the top three stack entries.

The ten digit keys, decimal point, and `EEX` key are used for
entering numbers in the obvious way. `EEX` begins entry of an
exponent in scientific notation. Just as with regular Calc, the
number is pushed onto the stack as soon as you press `ENTER`
or any other function key.

The `+/-` key corresponds to normal Calc’s `n` key. During
numeric entry it changes the sign of the number or of the exponent.
At other times it changes the sign of the number on the top of the
stack.

The `INV` and `HYP` keys modify other keys. As well as
having the effects described elsewhere in this manual, Keypad mode
defines several other “inverse” operations. These are described
below and in the following sections.

The `ENTER` key finishes the current numeric entry, or otherwise
duplicates the top entry on the stack.

The `UNDO` key undoes the most recent Calc operation.
`INV UNDO` is the “redo” command, and `HYP UNDO` is
“last arguments” (`M-RET`).

The `<-` key acts as a “backspace” during numeric entry.
At other times it removes the top stack entry. `INV <-`
clears the entire stack. `HYP <-` takes an integer from
the stack, then removes that many additional stack elements.

The `EXEC` key prompts you to enter any keystroke sequence
that would normally work in Calc mode. This can include a
numeric prefix if you wish. It is also possible simply to
switch into the Calc window and type commands in it; there is
nothing “magic” about this window when Keypad mode is active.

The other keys in this display perform their obvious calculator
functions. `CLN2` rounds the top-of-stack by temporarily
reducing the precision by 2 digits. `FLT` converts an
integer or fraction on the top of the stack to floating-point.

The `INV` and `HYP` keys combined with several of these keys
give you access to some common functions even if the appropriate menu
is not displayed. Obviously you don’t need to learn these keys
unless you find yourself wasting time switching among the menus.

`INV +/-`is the same as

`1/x`.`INV +`is the same as

`SQRT`.`INV -`is the same as

`CONJ`.`INV *`is the same as

`y^x`.`INV /`is the same as

`INV y^x`(the ‘`x`’th root of ‘`y`’).`HYP/INV 1`are the same as

`SIN`/`INV SIN`.`HYP/INV 2`are the same as

`COS`/`INV COS`.`HYP/INV 3`are the same as

`TAN`/`INV TAN`.`INV/HYP 4`are the same as

`LN`/`HYP LN`.`INV/HYP 5`are the same as

`EXP`/`HYP EXP`.`INV 6`is the same as

`ABS`.`INV 7`is the same as

`RND`(`calc-round`

).`INV 8`is the same as

`CLN2`.`INV 9`is the same as

`FLT`(`calc-float`

).`INV 0`is the same as

`IMAG`.`INV .`is the same as

`PREC`.`INV ENTER`is the same as

`SWAP`.`HYP ENTER`is the same as

`RLL3`.`INV HYP ENTER`is the same as

`OVER`.`HYP +/-`packs the top two stack entries as an error form.

`HYP EEX`packs the top two stack entries as a modulo form.

`INV EEX`creates an interval form; this removes an integer which is one of 0 ‘

`[]`’, 1 ‘`[)`’, 2 ‘`(]`’ or 3 ‘`()`’, followed by the two limits of the interval.

The `OFF` key turns Calc off; typing `C-x * k` or `C-x * *`
again has the same effect. This is analogous to typing `q` or
hitting `C-x * c` again in the normal calculator. If Calc is
running standalone (the `full-calc-keypad`

command appeared in the
command line that started Emacs), then `OFF` is replaced with
`EXIT`; clicking on this actually exits Emacs itself.
