24-Ruby IV

Our Mathcad Community forum has an Ideas section. They don't let me in there for political reasons. Thank God they're still allowed in here.
The best idea for Mathad is to take all the good things from SMath.
I will post pictures here describing some of the benefits of SMath over Mathad.

1. Range is Vector.

This idea is already implemented, albeit as an undocumented feature:

What version of Prime?

24-Ruby V
(To:ValeryOchkov)

Every version and also Mathcad 15 and below.
Actually the idea is not really implemented in Mathcad or Prime as the inline evaluation (this is what you missed when you defined V) turns the range into a vector and so it can't be used as a range anymore. So ranges and vectors still are different in nature.

In SMath, something that has not yet been fixed in Matcad has been fixed - the Range variable is a full-fledged vector. There is only one difference - an arithmetic progression is written in the Range variable. So is it?

"and below":

Mathcad 11 and below do not support inline evaluation.

OK, not that much "below" 😉 my bad.

2. No <- for a local variable. Only :=.

3. Two variant of the for cycle

4. Dynamic help when I unsert variable, function or operator

Definitely this is something that Mathcad must implement, it is much more comfortable to read directly how the tools are used, in addition, the current descriptions that mathcad uses are really poor if not terrible

5. Dynamic information near plot points

4-Participant
(To:ValeryOchkov)

Yes, it is something that Mathcad should incorporate, I am a civil engineer and this resource is quite useful for the study of influence lines in beams

6. Area in Area

7. Number format: digits after point an common number of not 0 digits

8. Two clicks for labguage chang

9. Create exe file

10. 7 not 6 boolean operators.

24-Ruby IV
(To:ValeryOchkov)

All my conscious life I dreamed that an operator would appear in the programs approximately equally. Such a program finally appeared, but not in Mathcad, but in SMath (version dated June 20, 2022).

Here is the only program in the world where the built-in operator is used, and not the user-defined operator is approximately the same!

Expandability.

I wonder how this 7th boolean operator ≈ is defined..

I guess it's not by simple rounding, since pi rounded to 3 digits is 3.142 and rounded to 2 digits it is 3.14, which the boolean pi ≈ 3.14 should then return 1 (true).

Should it use TOL (or any other global setting) then that would make it unusable, because then you might have to change that setting with every use of the ≈ operator.

In 1897, an amateur mathematician attempted to persuade the Indiana legislature to pass the Indiana Pi Bill with π = 3.2.

Why do you cross out the XOR operator?

Luc

24-Ruby IV
(To:LucMeekes)

But seriously, show me the task where this operator is needed? I haven't seen yet. Yes, this operator may be needed by someone. But then you need to introduce other boolean double operators. And there are not three, but 16.

See one table from one my book.

23-Emerald III

There are differences between the operation of the XOR and the UnEqual operators:

Luc

24-Ruby IV
(To:LucMeekes)

It is Mathcad nuances. The XOR and the UnEqual operators are equal. With boolean values!

But show me please one calculation with the XOR operator.

And more

24-Ruby IV
(To:ValeryOchkov)

Today SMath has

The world's first and so far the only program with an operator a not approximately equal!
