SmartCalc has a Display Only and a Print/Display mode. SmartCalc features include automatic repeat, store and recall, "freeze display", on-line help, date/time stamped tapes, printed tape messages, tape entry count and a double window plus stored memory display. o GENERAL: This version of SmartCalc is distributed as user supported, Shareware. The user is granted a limited license to use SmartCalc and to copy and freely share this program with others, subject to the provisions of the License Statement. If you continue using SmartCalc, after a thirty (30) day evaluation period, you are required to register. Three files CALC.EXE, CALC.DAT and CALC.DOC must be present before SmartCalc can operate. Before you begin, make a backup copy of the original disk and read these instructions. The instructions assume that you are familiar with your microcomputer and have a basic understanding of the Disk Operating System (DOS). - 1 - The conventions used for the carriage return and escape keys are ENTER and ESC. SmartCALC is not case sensitive, either upper or lower case characters may be used. This guide contains five pages plus a License Statement and Registration Form. o HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS: An IBM PC/XT/AT/PS/2 or compatible with a minimum of 256K RAM and DOS 2.1 or later are required. o REGISTRATION: As a registered SmartCalc user you are eligible to receive update information and one year of free technical support. When you register, if you do not have the latest version we will ship you the most current version. To register complete the Registration Form, enclose the $20 registration (outside USA $35 US dollars) or applicable site license fee and mail to: Cobrasoft, Inc. 4455 Torrance Blvd., Ste 273 Torrance, California 90503 Telephone: (213)532-6212 o INSTALLATION PROCEDURE: SmartCalc may be operated from either a floppy or hard drive. The instructions assume that drive A or C is used. If a different drive is used substitute the correct drive designator. Installation is not required for floppy drive systems. If a hard drive is used, allow 200 kilobytes of free disk space. When creating a directory you must supply a name, CALC or other valid directory name may be used. If a name other than CALC is used, substitute the correct directory name. To install SmartCalc onto a directory named CALC, proceed as shown: 1. From the root directory C> prompt type: MD\CALC <ENTER>. 2. From the C> prompt type: CD\CALC <ENTER>. 3. Place the SmartCalc disk in drive A. 4. From the C> prompt type: COPY A:*.* C: <ENTER>. Note the space after the Y and second asterisk. - 2 - o CONFIGURATION: As delivered, SmartCalc is configured for a black background, white text, designated printer port LPT1, plus red accents and borders. In nearly all cases, the default configuration is satisfactory. If changes are required, a text editor may be used to change the defaults. The CALC.DAT file contains the defaults; they are listed in the order described. o FLOPPY DRIVE START-UP PROCEDURE: 1. Place the SmartCalc disk in drive A. 2. At the DOS A> prompt type: CALC <ENTER>. o HARD DRIVE START-UP PROCEDURE: 1. At the DOS C> prompt type: CD\CALC <ENTER>. If a name other than CALC is used, substitute the correct directory name. 2. At the DOS prompt type: CALC <ENTER>. o TUTORIAL: This tutorial consists of two sample problems which cover the Print Only and the Print/Display modes. Both problems can be completed in less than ten minutes. The ten key pad should be used for the exercises. Some keyboards have a raised impression to identify the five (5) key, others do not. If your keyboard does not have a raised impression (on the ten key pad), a piece of tape will serve the same purpose. If your results do not agree with the tutorial, press <ENTER> to clear SmartCalc and try again. Display Only Mode: 1. Use the appropriate start-up procedure. 2. After the SELECT <D>DISPLAY ONLY <P>PRINT/DISPLAY <F1>HELP <ESC>QUIT prompt appears, press D. 3. Note that the mode (Display Only) appears above the right hand window and that the cursor is positioned to the left hand window. 4. When entries are made, numbers are entered first followed by a sign. The first entry must always be followed by a plus (+) or minus (-) sign. Use the backspace key to correct keying errors. Start by entering the first number, type: 165.076+. Note that the cumulative total is always rounded to two decimal places and that the cursor is moved to the leftmost position. - 3 - 5. The "freeze display" feature keeps 165.076 visible in the left hand window. If for any reason you are interrupted, the last entry is always displayed. 6. To subtract 32.09, type: 32.09-. The total should be 132.99. 7. To multiply by 1.065, type: 1.065*. The new total should be 141.63. 8. To add 25, type: 25+. The new total should be 166.63. It is not necessary to enter trailing zeros when an integer or even dollar amount is entered. 9. For the final entry divide by .025, type: .025/. The new total should be 6665.20. Note that it is not necessary to enter a leading zero for fractional numbers. 10. SmartCalc can accept ten digits plus a decimal point. Six of the ten digits can appear after the decimal point. For general business use, SmartCalc can handle a range from -99,999,999.99 to 99,999,999.99. When an overflow or division by zero occurs, memory is automatically cleared. 11. To clear SmartCalc, press <ENTER>. Press F1 to view the first Help Screen. Press <ENTER> to view the second Help Screen. Note that the sample problems shown are identical to the tutorial. When through, press <ESC> to return to the Smart- Calc display. Print/Display Mode: A printer is required for the Print/Display mode. Before using the Print/Display mode check that the printer is "on-line" and has an adequate supply of paper. Some printers can be set to skip over the perforation. If a skip is required, consult your printer manual and set the printer according to the manufacturers instructions. If the printer is not adjusted to skip over the perforation, SmartCalc will print a continuous tape. 1. Use the appropriate start-up procedure. 2. After the SELECT <D>DISPLAY ONLY <P>PRINT/DISPLAY <F1>HELP <ESC>QUIT prompt appears, press P. Note that the cursor is positioned at the message prompt. Up to 30 characters may be entered. 3. Type any brief message then press <ENTER>. The message prompt may be bypassed by pressing <ENTER>. Note that the mode (Print/Display) appears above the right hand window and that the message is displayed beneath the windows. - 4 - 4. When entries are made, numbers are entered first followed by a sign. The first entry must always be followed by a plus (+) or minus (-) sign. Use the backspace key to correct keying errors. Begin by entering a negative number, type: 234.87-. 5. If all has gone well a date/time stamp, message, number, sign and cumulative total will be printed on the tape. Note that the number is printed with six decimal places while the total is rounded to two decimal places. 6. The "freeze display" feature keeps 234.87- visible in the left hand window. If for any reason you are interrupted, the last entry is always displayed. 7. To store 450 in memory and add it to the total, type: 450+S. It is not necessary to enter trailing zeros when an integer or even dollar amount is entered. The new total should be 215.13. Note that the stored number is displayed above the left hand window. 8. To multiply by 1.7654, type: 1.7654*. The new total should be 379.79. 9. To recall 450 from memory and add 450, type: R+. The new total should be 829.79. When a number has been recalled and a backspace or keying error occurs, the recalled number is deleted from the left hand window. 10. To add 450 again, type: +. The new total should be 1279.79. Note that an automatic repeat was used. 11. To multiply by 450, type: *. The new total, after the repeat, should be 575905.73. 12. To clear SmartCalc press <ENTER>. Review the tape and note that the audit trail includes the entry, arithmetic operator, cumulative total and the number of entries. 13. When Smartcalc is cleared from the Print/Display mode, the CHANGE MESSAGE (Y/N) prompt will appear. If the message is to be repeated type: Y otherwise type: N. Note that if the mode is changed to Display Only, the message is erased. 14. When through, press <ESC> to return to the SmartCalc display. 15. Press <ESC> to quit SmartCalc and exit to DOS. - 5 - o LICENSE STATEMENT: By using this software the user agrees to accept a non-exclusive, limited license to use the software on any single computer and has permission to copy and freely share the software with others subject to the following provisions: 1.
