This file is the description for the Scicalc Math Utilities demo
program. This is a totally rewritten version of the Scicalc Math Demo
Version 1.0, released in August, 1985, and version 1.2, released
February, 1986. The SCICALC Math Utilities Demo program is hereby
released to the Public Domain using the concept of "Shareware". Share
this program with your friends, user's groups, and your favorite BBS.
Please do not modify the program in any way, or try to accept
remuneration for it. After all, MANY hours of work were put into this
work, the authors should get the credit. Treat it the same as you would
expect OTHERS to treat YOUR work. If you feel that this program has
benefited you, then please find it in your heart to send $20.00 to the
above address.

The demo program illustrates the use of, and finds accurate
solutions to over 250 functions. These functions range from unit
conversions to Fast Fourier Transform, Complex Number analysis, matrix
algebra, and a wide variety of others. A complete list of the functions
available is at the end of this file.

This program is set up to run in a completely windowed mode, at
some point in the future, I may make it memory resident. Right now, it
runs only as a stand alone program. This version is also not compiled
for use of the 8087 coprocessor, although a version exists that does use
8087's. I am attemping to reach the widest possible number of users with
this version.

The Scicalc Demo program was developed on an IBM XT, and has been
tested on an IBM AT with Hercules graphics. It requires 192K of free
RAM, of which about 40K is used for window storage, and 40-45K bytes are
for program space. The rest of the space is reserved for heap space,
which is where all matrix manipulations are done. The program also
expects the use of IBM's CGA, although it only uses Text Mode and should
therefore be compatible with almost everything, except the monochrome
adaptor, which may give some trouble.

In general, the routines are error protected, especially against
illegal input. However, there may still be conditions that will cause
the program to dump. There are limitations to what you can do, such as
the size of three dimensional matrices. These limitations will be
described in a minute.

The program is fairly self-explanatory, with all functions called
through menus, and most input routines labelled for what is expected.
There is no direct on-line help, but short of putting in gibberish into
the routines, the program will "lead" you through. The solutions are
sometimes returned as real numbers, sometimes as complex numbers,
sometimes as vectors. Again, it should be relatively clear as to what
is being displayed.

The basic limitations are these:

1- Matrices have limited size capabilities, limited due to the
methods I have used implementing the window routines. The math
routines themselves are only limited by the available memory.
The maximum sizes are about 20 items in a one dimensional
vector, about an 8x8 two dimensional matrix, and about 4x4x3
three dimensional matrix.

2- Second and third level menus may crash if the value entered to
select the menu choice does not exist on the menu. This is not
a serious issue, as long as you are careful with data entry.

3- Needs 192K RAM, Color Graphics Adaptor, one disk drive
(preferably a hard drive), MS-DOS 2.1 or higher. Known to be
incompatible with IBM Monochrome Graphics Board.

4- Non-8087 version limited to real values under abs(1e37). This
can only be noticed in very unusual circumstances, and in
most cases, this number will not be exceeded. Watch out for
intermediate solutions exceeding these limits.

The Math Utilities and all source code of these routines are
available from Acro Technology, Inc. The source codes for the math
routines are written in Turbo Pascal and are built so that all variables
are passed on the command line, and so that only stack and heap space are
used. The actual data segment size on the math routines themseleves is 32
bytes. They are commented, and written in an easy to use modular manner.
All error trapping is already built in, any user extensions to the error
trapping routines are easy to implement. Use of the routines is as easy
as including the modules that you need, and then interfacing the functions
to your programs.

The following is a list of all math functions available within the
Scicalc Math Utilities Package:
