Thank You for keeping this fine piece of SW alive and healthy!
I have noticed that the new functions introduced in 3.0.9 and before are not reflected in the Help file or the manual web page.
May I also repeat a wish I have posted in february 2010:

It would be nice to have the following runtime switches implemented into this great software to ease automatic use.

/c Input is in clipboard and result will be in clipboard also.
If input consists of more than one line (separated by 😉 the output ‹window› will be cleared beforehand.
/snn Number of significant figures on output
/mmode Mode of operation. mode can be rad or deg
/bnn Display base. nn may be 02, 10 or 16.
/dscimode Equivalent to the directive scimode
/h Clear the history
/enn Output is (from now on) in scientific notation with nn significant figures. For example, with nn = 7 p would be reported as 3.141593, but p/100 would be reported as 3.141593e-2. This would be an alternative to the /snn switch. The /snn switch generates unnormalised numbers, whereas the /enn switch generates normalised figures.

Thank You

I am, as already said, very satisfied with the calculator as it is, but I have one great wish… because of my very special work (independent physical research), it would be of great help if the variables would be in alphabetical order in a file possible to edit, so it could be corrected and printed out too. The number of constants is very high (more the 300, I didn’t count them) since all atoms and their isotopes have lots of constant values. So the number of constants should be unlimited, if it isn’t already. I can very good live without those features… it’s just a suggestion making things easy (but maybe only for me ?)

Hi Berndt, I think using a script might be what you want to do. You can create a script file that you edit with a text after, and keep variables organized the way you like. Then you can update the shortcut you used to launch CCalc and add the path to your script file as an argument when launching CCalc. It will run first thing, and then you have all your variables ready to go!
