BUGS ^

Math doesn't work for processors, that doesn't use the number format used by Intel.

-

Cell formats are not resolved yet. This means especially, that days and currencies are not represented correctly.

-

No graphics, no embedded objects.

-

Some functions are missing, even some mathematical functions.

-

Lots more is missing.

ABOUT ^

This program is dedicated to Herbert Baum and the anti Nazi group with him. Most of the group was killed 1942 after attacking a propaganda exhibition. 1984 students tried to name the main building of TU Berlin after him.
