I'm trying to use
sc, the classic Unix spreadsheet calculator, mainly because I want to be able to look at some csv files nicely formatted in my terminal. I installed
sc 7.16 but am seeing some strange behavior that I can't seem to fix.
When I start up
sc, if I type, say
=, to try to set a numeric value for the first cell
A0, and it gives me a prompt like so
i> let A0 =
so then I type 1 and press enter
i> let A0 = 1
and then I get
A0 (10 2 0)  syntax error: let A0<= = 1
This seems unexpected and I'm not sure how to even go forward. I see the same sort of problem when trying to read in
Further details: running Mac OS X 10.6.8 and installed sc via macports (though I'll note that I also tried building from the sc 7.16 source and but the version I got from this displayed the exact same error).
