Loosely, a program is a sequence of steps, bound together in some fashion, that accomplishes a specified task. A typical mathematical program takes some inputs and returns some outputs. But how do you do this effectively inside Mathcad?
Mathcad programming means different things to different people. It is possible to write logic-driven programs inside the Mathcad language - these will be visible as part of your document and are the quickest way to prototype a desired multi-step behavior in Mathcad. You can also incorporate C, C++, or FORTRAN code as built-in functions. Doing so can be a useful technique if you have legacy or third-party code that you'd like to execute as part of a Mathcad document.
This module is designed to show you the breadth of opportunity for programming in and with Mathcad. We will demonstrate many of Mathcad's computational and connectivity features with lots of tips and examples along the way.
