How to compile TurboCalc With TC.EXE: 1. Run TC.EXE 2.

. In the Project pulldown menu specify the project name "TCALC.PRJ" 3. From the main menu select the Run option from the Run menu With TCC.EXE: Compile from DOS with the following command line: TCC tcalc tcparser tcdisply tcinput tcommand tcutil In both cases, compiling under a large data model (COMPACT, LARGE, or HUGE) will give you much more memory for your spreadsheets. The compiler may run out of file handles when compiling TurboCalc. To allow the compiler to open as many files as possible, put the statement "FILES = 20" in the file CONFIG.SYS in the root directory of the disk that you start your computer with. The TurboCalc parser The state and goto information for the parser was created using the UNIX YACC utility. The input to YACC was as follows: %token CONST CELL FUNC %% e : e '+' t e '-' t t ; t : t '*' f t '/' f f ; f : x '^' f x ; x : '-' u u ; u : CELL ':' CELL o ; o : CELL '(' e ')' CONST FUNC '(' e ')' ; %% Additional TurboCalc information Formulas are entered as text. TurboCalc will determine if what you entered is a legal formula or text.

Cell names in formulas are typed in with the column followed by the row. Examples: A1+A2 B6^5 To sum a group of cells, put a colon between the first cell and the last cell in the group. Example: A1:A10 sums all of the cells from A1 to A10 and puts the result in the current cell. The available TurboCalc functions are: ABS - absolute value ACOS - arc cosine ASIN - arc sine ATAN - arc tangent COS - cosine COSH - hyperbolic cosine EXP - exponential function LOG - logarithm LOG10 - base 10 logarithm POW10 - raise argument to the 10th power ROUND - round to the nearest whole number SIN - sine SINH - hyperbolic sine SQR - square SQRT - square root TAN - tangent TANH - hyperbolic tangent TRUNC - return the whole part of a number Examples: TRUNC(A1) SQRT(SQR(34.5)) ABS(TRUNC(B16))
