sCal: View v.0.8 or v.0.9 or DownLoad sCal2, etc.
(Download is about halfway down the SourceForge Project Page)
If you want a closer look at sCal, click on the thumbnails: either version 0.8 (top left) or 0.9 (middle). You won't get some ful-sized, static screen shot that you can poke all day, and never see how sCal works. For about 37 kb of download effort, you'd only get to see how sCal looks under my selection of operating system and browser---
Any of Windows 98, NT, 2000, XP, or Mobile 2003 with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5/6, PIE'03, Netscape 6 / Mozilla 1, or Opera 7...though not all combinations. If you're on a low MicroSoft diet (i.e Apple Macintosh, Palm, Linux, etc.) and are willing do-it-yourself, click on the Q / A link below.
If you click on these, you'll get (in 24 or 20 kb, on your platform) the real sCal:
Unfortunately, sCal2 is not so easily obtained. Its 150-kb file size, 130-kb draft Documentation file, a copy of the GNU General Public License, and a slew of small image files is a little too big to link directly. Its all available from the SourceForge Project Page (about halfway down the page) in an sCal-08-09.zip file. And also FREE, of course. sCal2 is sCal on steroids. It also serves as a repository of JScrAps transferable to sCal: expanded Conversion Factors, Mathematics, Materials, Physics, Chemistry, Structures, Hydrology, Surveying, etc.--though most have to be adjusted for the lack of the n[0..20] I/O array--a deficiency to be rectified in version 1.0.
You don't have to program anything if you don't want to. Maybe 'Easily' and 'Programming' don't belong in in the same phrase, but programming doesn't get any easier than in sCal. Yes, it demands a bit of precision and attention to detail. Even running sCal can take some experience. The Slide Rule was like that--though a lot worse (remember your formula, keep track of where you are, and decimal places?--what are those?) Still, science and engineering students (known for precision and attention to detail) mastered that...in the old days. Now they're memorizing the cryptic symbols on the tiny keys of $100 programmable calculators.
There's more. A Swiss Army knife may not have the best screwdriver you own. And sometimes you need exactly the right screwdriver. But you can't always carry around a 50-pound tool chest. Check out the Q/A.....
