I'm pretty sure I haven't ;)
missed the ROT after the DUP2. Sorry, my bad! Werner

Seems to me a small price to pay for accuracy. You are both right, my tests revealed (at default 32digit precision): REVLIST for 2000 integers on a list: 5.7 ms INV for 2000 integers on a list: 86 ms ΣLIST for 2000 integers on a list: 63 ms So it's not worth adding the reverse sum, just use REVLIST. I didn't think it would be that fast.

to 'Kahan sum' an exploded list, you may use:
In: ob1..obN N Out: Sum(ob1..obN) Code: \<< Unfortunately, for 12digit machines it makes no difference in RFC(25) and RFC(37) (summing small to large) Werner

SysRPL which doesn't round intermediate results to 12 digits might handle these and all others, no matter the summing order, I think. But I can't check this as I am SysRPL illiterate. Gerson.

Just a long, slow and rather exotic solution:

RE: Programming exercise (RPL/RPN)  Reciprocal Fibonacci Constant
If our only goal is just to compute the constant, the following does it faster by summing up about four times as less terms and adding a correction term:
HP42S Code:
6 XEQ RFC > 3.35988566624 ( 1.4 s ) HP42S code on wp34s: 18 A > 18 XEQ RFC > 3.359885666243177553172011302918926 ( 0.2 s, timed with TICKS ) HP41 Code:
7 XEQ ALPHA RFC ALPHA > 3.359885666 ( 3.7 s ) HP 50g Code:
<< 6 RFC >> TEVAL > 3.35988566624 ; s: .0946 Notes: 1) nonoptimized codes; 2) no proof why this works.

RE: Programming exercise (RPL/RPN)  Reciprocal Fibonacci Constant
"four times less" is a very awkward expression.

RE: Programming exercise (RPL/RPN)  Reciprocal Fibonacci Constant
In fact it is possible to obtain 10 digits starting with only the first four terms. A simple 7term continued fraction suffices for the rest:
1+1+1/2+1/3 + 1/(21/(101/(124/(229/(3416/(5625/(90))))))) = 3.35988566602 Denominators of the continued fraction: F(41)=2 F(41)+F(4+2)=10 10+2=12 12+10=22 22+12=34 34+22=56 56+34=90 ... Numerators: 1, 1, 1, 4, 9, 16, 25... Equal numbers of regular terms and continued fraction terms might be better. Edited to add a missing 's'. PS  Or more generically, for an even n: \[\psi \simeq \frac{1}{F_{1}}+\frac{1}{F_{2}}+\frac{1}{F_{3}}+\cdots +\frac{1}{F_{n1}}+\frac{1}{F_{n}}+\frac{1}{F_{n1}\frac{1}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{1}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{2}\frac{1^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{2}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{3}\frac{2^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{3}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{4}\frac{3^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{4}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{5}\frac{4^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{5}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{6}\frac{5^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{6}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{7}... }}}}}}}\] PPS  The following have been calculated with 10, 8 and 6 terms of the continued fraction, respectively. n=2 > 3.359876595167099 n=6 > 3.359885666018419 n=8 > 3.359885666243172 These examples require further tests to significantly more terms of the continued fraction. PPPS  Although the first four or five terms of the continued fraction in the generalization above are certainly correct it appears there is a problem with it as it obviously doesn't converge to the tree constants, no matter the number of continued fraction terms is increased, at least in my tests on the HP 50g. Anyway, these first few terms of the continued fraction do improve the convergence, especially for larger n. While this isn't solved the '=' symbol will be replaced with '≃'. Perhaps this should be done with 34 digits of accuracy on Free42 or wp34s in double precision with an equivalent RPN program. Code:
This is based upon Bart's program and requires two arguments: k (number of terms of the continued fraction in level 2: and n (number of terms of the regular series), with even n and k >= 3. Examples: 10 2 > 3.35987659517 50 2 > 3.35987659517 100 2 > 3.35987659517 3 4 > 3.35988200590 4 4 > 3.35988562091 5 4 > 3.35988566563 6 4 > 3.35988566601 7 4 > 3.35988566602 10 4 > 3.35988566602 4 6 > 3.35988566623 5 6 > 3.35988566624 3 8 > 3.35988566624 PPPPS  Now, this appears to be correct: \[\psi = \frac{1}{F_{1}}+\frac{1}{F_{2}}+\frac{1}{F_{3}}+\cdots +\frac{1}{F_{n1}}+\frac{1}{F_{n}}+\frac{1}{F_{n1}\frac{F_{1}^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{1}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{2}\frac{F_{2}^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{2}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{3}\frac{F_{3}^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{3}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{4}\frac{F_{4}^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{4}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{5}\frac{F_{5}^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{5}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{6}\frac{F_{6}^{2}}{F_{n+2}\cdot F_{6}+F_{n1}\cdot F_{7}... }}}}}}}\] This should be obvious and indeed that's what I had tried in the beginning, but somehow I skipped one index, which may have led me astray. The first terms of the regular reciprocal series, 1/1 + 1/1 and 12 terms of the continued fraction give 12 correct digits: 2+1/(11/(41/(54/(99/(1425/(2364/(37169/(60441/(971156/(1573025/(2547921/441))))))))))) = 3.359885666241351 I will rewrite the RPL program above later and test this with 100 digits using the LongFloat library.
