INSTACALC is a full-featured spreadsheet program with an interesting twist: it's memory-resident. This means that on the first run, nothing seems to happen. INSTACALC has simply been loaded into memory and is now waiting for you to call it up by pressing ``Alt I''. INSTACALC waits patiently while you type a letter with your wordprocessor, update your database, or whatever. Then when you press ``Alt I'', it's on the screen and ready to serve you. This has some very useful applications, such as incorporating part of a spreadsheet table into a wordprocessing file, or cutting and pasting with other programs. You can import and export from Lotus 1-2-3, dBASE, and .DIF files. PC Magazine made INSTACALC an Editor's Choice among low cost spreadsheets.
