This is an ugly, small and fast homepage - therefore it is very effective and powerful.

What is MacroCALC
MacroCALC - "mc" or "321" is a powerful Lotus compatible character based spreadsheet that supports 100000 rows, 700 columns, 40 functions, 8 display formats, file linking, macro programming and user definable functions.
It is a curses-based console-program and needs no graphical environmaent.
It is fully integrated with [nt]roff, units, man, awk, perl and sh. As it should be in the UNIX-environment, the program can act as a filter enabling users to use pipes to perform complex transforms on streams of data. It contains a C programming interface as well as Lotus WKS and dBASE file support. MacroCALC's own file-format is flat ASCII, easy to understand and can therefore be directly manipulated with awk, perl or other standard UNIX-tools, or even with editors like vi.
MacroCALC is the only spreadsheet that manages units:
1 mile + 1 km = 1.62 miles
1 km / 1 hour * 30 sec = 8.33 m
MacroCALC allows for calculations that incorporate units of measure with its associated value within each individual cell. Numerical manipulations are accomplished in a fashion that ensures consistent units of measure and automated unit conversions. It contains over 800 different types of units including simple ones like length and time, and complex units like power. Like a scientist, the system is aware of the rules for calculating with units; so for instance if a "length" is divided a "time" it will show an "speed" result, and a "length" cannot be added to a "mass".
MacroCALC is a professional product, sold a couple hundred times for UnixWare, SCO, Coherent, Interactive, Solaris, AIX and HP-UX. Its rcs-controlled, lint-clean ANSI-C source is based on yacc, lex and [n]curses. It runs on every terminal or emulation that has a correct terminfo-entry. The user-interface is very convenient and well-known by Lotus 1-2-3 users. Function- and cursor-keys and extended video attributes are supported. The menus and messages are in separate editable files and can be easily translated into any language (English, French, German and Polish are included in the distribution). Every command in the package has a detailed man-page (English only). The product is supported by the developers homepage, by eMail or Fax.
