The Sheet-Based Calculator
Ever pulled out
the calculator from the menu to do some quick calculations and then
that you needed to refer back to earlier calculations? The normal
utility display is small and only lets you see the latest number
At this point, you might have to start up a spreadsheet and redo your
But doing quick serial calculations one after another in a spreadsheet
can be awkward and needlessly complicated. Furthermore, you cannot see
the formulæ used. It is sort of like Goldilocks and the Three
one is too hot, and the other is too cold -- neither are "just right".
The Sheet-Based Calculator provides a "just right" solution. It
you to enter normal mathematical expressions in a word-processor-like
but then to execute them as well. Its algorithm is implemented by using
compiler concepts and parser grammar rules. It can be used in most
systems because it is written in Java.
