The COPYING file contains a copy of the GPL described above.

The sourcecode is brclc.c.

The brclc.sty is the LaTeX package.

Makefile is the Makefile for the program brclc under LINUX (may also
work with other systems).

the testclc.sh shellscript for testing.

The README.DOS, testclc.bat and a compiled brclc.exe for DOS-users.

Copy all files in 1 directory.

Compile the source brclc.c:

You can use the Makefile just typing:


or type

gcc -O2 -Wall -lm -s brclc.c -o brclc.

Now copy the file brclc in your PATH (/usr/bin/).

Test the function by typing:
testclc.sh test.tex

You may copy the brclc.sty file in your TeX-tree where the
other macro-packages can be found.

The program brclc and the package brclc.sty implements a possibility
for doing 16-bit(double) calculations within a LaTeX file. The
following calculations are implemented:

+, -, *, /, ^, exp, log, ln, sin, cos, tan, asin, acos, atan.

The output can be formated and rounded.

The program brclc is a preprocessor so it must be run before you
run LaTeX! So it is recommended using a shellscript like 'testclc'
which does this for you.

In the LaTeX-File you must load the package brclc.sty:


now the new command \clc{arg} is implemented.

The program brclc outputs a file called *.clc. In this file LaTeX finds
the definitions needed to completed the \clc{arg}-command. It is
automatically loaded by the brclc.sty package.

The program brclc also outputs a log-file named *.clg.

The LaTeX-commands:

\verb, \begin/end{verbatim}, \includeonly, \include, \input

are also interpreted by brclc.

For more Information read the brclc_ge.dvi file. Maybe someone will
translate this File in english? Contact me.

You can not implement the \clc{arg}-command in new command-definitions
because the brclc-program will not understand this!

Other then the above shown verbatim-Modes will not work over the \clc{arg}

LaTeX-commands or -enviroments which made virtual printing for internal
calculations may not work. But 'tabularx' is now implemented.

brclc – Support 16-bit (double) calculations in

The package provides a preprocessor brclc (written in C; a DOS executable is available), and a package, which processes a file that's been run through the preprocessor (the output of the preprocessor tells how to process the \clc commands in the in the file. The script testclc (available as a shell script or a DOS batch file) shows a typical processing run.
