Programming HP 50g: Is There an Editor?

In summary, The HP 50g does not have a specific programming editor like the TI programming systems. The support page mentions windows software, but it is unclear if this would fulfill the desired function. The advanced users ref manual briefly discusses creating programs on a computer, but there is no mention of a domain specific language or emulator. More information can be found in the manual for the HP 50g, which has extensive capabilities.

The support page mentions windows software, but you probably found that and want something else (*) ? Can you describe a bit better (don't know TI or HP stuff).

The advanced users ref manual has a very short

Creating Programs on a Computer........................1-7

(*) Like a domain specific language or an emulator or a language sensitive editor ?
