    Hp 50g: How do I clear a Matrix inside Matrix Writer

    Friends:

    I'm using an Hp 50g.

    Lets say I enter a list of numbers in the cells of the Matrix Writer. I run some statistics on the numbers and I wish to enter a new list. How do I clear the old one without going an clearing the contents one by one?

    Thanks amigos,

    Migs

    The manual is here:

    I don't see an easy clear matrix in there.


    hmmmm . . . .
    Could you perform a function on a matrix that would render it full of zeros?

    Im just thinking there has to be a function or a simple way as this is so common an operation. -Migs

    The list comes under a variable name, I presume. Couldn't you just tell the program to delete the variable? (That works on the TI calculators anyway.)

    I'll bet it has to do with the purge function, so I'll do my investigating starting in that direction. -Migs
