(About the author)
     When invoked in AutoCad, the program will launch a Scientific Calculator that exactly simulates a real calculator on the screen. It has the ability to perform both arithmetic and scientific calculations and is capable of performing the MDAS calculation priority sequence. It supports 'trigonometric functions', 'standard deviation' and other engineering functions. Since this is a simulation of a real calculator, it has a dialog box that mimics a real one. All inputs, therefore, can be carried out using the mouse by simply clicking the desired key or keys on the calculator. Further, it can be invoked transparently as a response to commands that require an integer or real number input. The calculator creates a text file assigned as "COM.MEM" to store the inputs for Memory-In and Memory-Out functions. This file is read and loaded everytime the program is invoked. Sporadically (maybe once in a thousand executions), the program fails to execute prompting an error: "INVALID DOTTED PAIR" (i am sorry for that). Unfortunately, the culprit is the text file,"COM.MEM". If this situation occurs, the CULPRIT should be deleted immediately. It is located where the program is installed. This program was written a few years back (about the time when AutoCAD R13 was released) and was put to use after one year in the making. Time constraints and hectic office work schedule had prevented this author from fixing this bug. I promise, this will be fixed sooner. Type "COM" to activate the program.
