However, until a hardware standard has been set, such systems are not very portable. On the other hand, the speed of portable menu-driven systems can be compared with that obtained by question-and-answer methods. If the only design goals are minimal learning time and maximum accessibility by non-specialists, the question-and-answer method is most certainly the right answer. However, this method gets very tiresome after a while, as the user always can anticipate the next question, but cannot speed up the input.

Several manual schemes, which can be performed much faster using numerically better methods on a computer than by hand, often help the students to get a better understanding of the underlying theories during their use. For example, many CACSD packages support algorithms transforming systems from the time to the frequency domain and vice versa. Nevertheless, we feel that it is pedagogically better to let the students perform this translation by hand a few times using simple examples, as this also gives an illustration of the physical meaning of this translation.
