 Posted: 26 Feb 2011 10:30:11 pm    Post subject: So im trying to write a program to do a calculus procedure known as Eulers Method. If you don't know what it is doesn't matter. Point is it involves multiple variables. So if you look at it i have it like this: Code: ``` Input "Differential =",Str1 // The person would input X+Y for example Input "Initial X =",X //They would say 1 or something Input "Initial Y =",Y // They would put it in 1 ``` I can't think of a way to make Str1 go from being "X+Y" to being "2" Or at least producing the number 2 so i can use it later on in the program. Edit: Ive been looking into the Expr( and inString( commands can't seem to figure out if they will help me outLast edited by Guest on 26 Feb 2011 10:33:03 pm; edited 1 time in total

 Posted: 27 Feb 2011 10:57:05 am    Post subject: expr( is exactly what you are looking for ^-^ If Str1 is "X+Y" then doing expr(Str1 you will get the result of X+Y. Another trick that might not be too useful unless you are using expr(Str1 a lot in your program is doing Str1→u (where u is [2nd][7]) and then you can just use 'u' instead of 'expr(Str'. I hope you have fun with your calc stuff! I remember making a program to do that because I could never remember the algorithm Programming it always helps me to remember.

I also solved the problem of adding them together Str1+"+"+Str2=Equation+Equation If you don't need to display the actual equation, you could use expr(Str1)+expr(Str2[font="Arial"]. It's a lot faster and smaller than expr(Str1+"+"+Str2[font="Arial"]
