Order of Operations CalculatorJust made an Order of Operations Calculator "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20091020 12:59:15
Re: Order of Operations CalculatorIt pretty gracefully handled my huge input. You may want to put a limit to the amount of text one can put in the input box though. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20091020 15:25:04
Re: Order of Operations CalculatorHi;
Well, I bet my input is huger. So maybe there might be overflow issues also. Tree idea is excellent cause it shows how it was parsed.

Re: Order of Operations Calculator
I was referring to the length of input that I was giving, and if your next line is your input, it wasn't. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #7 20091023 11:27:45
