TRICALC- The ultimate pop-up calculator

Requires color adaptor for optimum performance.

TRICALC is a powerful memory resident calculator program.

It is meant for those times when a swift calculation is needed

but one is in another program. Without dropping out of the

current program, one presses the hot-key and TRICALC appears to

save the day! The great advantage of TRICALC is the method

of entering expressions to be evaluated. Instead of dealing

with only 2 parameters at a time (LIKE OTHER, INFERIOR,

CALCULATORS DO), TRICALC allows an entire string to be entered

and evaluated. Results are returned in both standard and

scientific notation.

If the register $R holds the number 6,

the expression:

> 3+7*Cos(360)-Log(10000)+Sqrt(4)*$R

Would be evaluated to 18 and 1.80000000000 E01

(NOTE: Order of operations is followed, so 7*3+5 is not the

same as 7*(3+5))

TRICALC's functions are of the form: Func(Argument)

TRICALC supports the following functions:

Sin - Trigonometric SINE function of the argument ex. Sin(45)

Cos - Trig. COSINE function

Tan - Trig. TANGENT function ( Sin[X]/Cos[X] )

ArcSin - Trig ARC-SINE function. Inverse operation of Sine.

Domain is X: -1<=X<=1

ArcCos - Trig ARC-COSINE function. Similar to ARCSIN

ArcTan - Trig ARC-TANGENT function. Similar to ARCSIN

Ln - Logarithm with base e of the argument (approx. 2.7)

Log - Logarithm with base 10

Exp - e raised to the argument ex. Exp(2) = approx. 2.7^2

Sqrt - Square root of argument

N'th roots can be made by using X^(1/N)

ex. 27^(1/3) = 3rd root of 27 = 3

TRICALC also has registers to hold the results of operations.

to assign a value to a register, enter the following at the > prompt:

$[REG]=Expression

There are 26 registers- $A..$Z

$A..$Y are user adjustable while $Z will always hold the result of

the last operation. All register's values will carry over from each

pop-up, so they are usable for holding any value you want to remember.

Registers can be used just like numbers or functions.

ex. $R^6-Sin($A+2*(1/$N))+7

When putting TRICALC into memory the default pop-up key is ALT-C.

The user can, instead, pick his/her own pop-up key, such as CTRL-ALT-HOME

or something similarly stupid. To do this use the primary value as the first

parameter and the auxilliary value as the second. Here are some examples:

TriCalc 59 F1 is Hot-Key

TriCalc 119 Ctrl-Home

130 Alt-Hyphen

15 Shift-Tab

20 Alt-T

To get other values, consult the Turbo Pascal (TM Borland Int'l) manual

or other resource. The values are standard main-aux byte keyboard

controls.

If you want to avoid the annoying opening screen, use NS (NoScreen) as a

parameter. I would recommend putting the TriCalc call in a batch file

if you are going to use some particular combination often.

Enjoy this useful (We hope) utility, and support the ShareWare concept

by sending $5.00 and any comments or suggestions to TriSoft at the below

address. If you would like an updated, customized version please send $25.OO

and we can give you an updated version (customized colors, customized func-

tions, graphing, derivatives/integrals, and extended register access)

Thank You.
