Does anyone think it's possible to reprogram a scientific calculator?
centip3de wrote:Define reprogram. Does it mean, reprogramming what a certain button does? Does it mean reprogramming the math behind it all? Does it mean reprogramming a certain action (such as, when 8 * 8 is entered, it output's 712490)?
Also, what tools are you using? What language are you using? What are the specs on the calculator? Is it able to connect to a computer? Does it have a file system implemented? Does it have a BIOS?
We need more information.

It has no (visible) connections to a computer, but surely it must do somewhere so the factory can pre-program it.
By reprogram it I mean for example if I press 1 then it outputs some defined text such as "The night is dark".
With the calculator having a file system implemented or having a BIOS, I'm not sure at all.
I'm not currently using any tools/languages as I wouldn't even know where to begin, although I wouldn't mind using any language.
