TeXpérimental submitted the calcfrac package. Version: 0.1 2023-10-26 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Calculates the value of an expression containing fractions Announcement text:
This package for TeX & LaTeX calculates a numerical expression containing fractions. The result is given as a fraction. Important note. This package is intended to be educational and its writing and the description of all the technical points of the code are the subject of 6 videos on youtube (https://youtu.be/6lF4P6B3msw and the following ones). Therefore, it only has a short description in the README file. There is no manual or documentation.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/calcfrac The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/generic/calcfrac/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

calcfrac – Calculates the value of an expression containing fractions

This package is an engine for calculating numerical expressions containing fractions. The numerical value of the expression is calculated with a non-expandable method and displayed in the form of an irreducible fraction or, where appropriate, an integer.

This package is intended for educational purposes. The videos showing its writing from scratch are available on youtube from episode 24: https://youtu.be/6lF4P6B3msw. This is why it is delivered with only a minimalist documentation.
