Math-Intensive Reports with GNU Emacs and Calc, Part 2
One aspect of Calc that is difficult to simulate properly for publication is its interactive behavior. In order to explain how to use Calc interactively in the static medium of the printed page, I had to resort in a couple of places to the trick of showing a line twice. The first is what I typed in the editing buffer before invoking Calc. The second is what I got back on the same line after invoking Calc. Therefore, if I run Calc a second time on the article file, it won't come out identical. This isn't generally a problem when preparing a report, because one is normally using Calc instead of trying to demonstrate it.
