HP 38g Calculator - Sending and Receiving Applets

Description
A convenient way to distribute or share problems and files with other users is to transmit (copy) aplets directly from one HP 38g to another. This takes place via the infrared port.
Aplets can also be sent and received to/from a remote storage device such as an applet disk drive or computer. This takes place via a cable connection and requires an applet disk drive or specialized software running on a PC or Mac (such as a connectivity kit).
