Who is Paul Courbis?

Paul Courbis, is a French programmer, mostly known for reverse engineering the HP-28 and then the HP-48 series of calculator, and writing multiple articles and books disclosing his findings. These books had a surprising success in France.

Most of these programs are still available today, and can be traced back to the original reverse-engineering published by Paul Courbis.
