    Xxl is the real name? :-?

    Please say the real names if you want us to help finding them.

    You can search for more apps here:

    Why not? We tell you which are the best spreadsheets available, you say
    no, but not why.

    wait. You said taken?

    Do you mean that you have to use a spreadsheet that no other student has
    chosen? That each one has to choose a different one? Because if your
    class is large, the number is limited... have a look at that wikipedia
    article.

    My native language is Spanish.
    No, my problem is I can't find the applications. I'm working with
    OpenSuse 12.3 GNOME 3.6.3.1
    I don't know if i'm doing it wrong, every time I see a possible
    application (For example: Xxl) I open Yast, then software managment and
    then type the name of the app. But it doesn't apper :/
    My school didn't give me anything, I'm for my own. I have to look for a
    spreed sheet (I can't take Gnumeric, OpenOffice, Calligra-Sheet).


    Hi
    Xxl looks like it was developed in 1999.... way to old for openSUSE
    12.3...

    Why can't you use LibreOffice calc?

    Using YaST will only show the applications available on the release. To
    search further use http://software.opensuse.org/search? (click the
    spanner to set at 12.3)

    You might find joining IRC channel #opensuse-es or the Spanish mailing
    list may help.

    Yes, that's what I meant. I didn't know there was a number limit, my teacher just said "There are plenty of them"
    but thank you, I'll take a look at that wikipedia article and then I'll take with my teacher to see if I can re-use a spreadsheet.

    I can't because another student used it, so I have to look for another. I'm going to try what you told me, and use that search page.
    Thank you a lot

    Some others to look at:

    xspread

    PlanMaker

    NB An important criteria for many users is interoperability with the proprietary MS Excel and its proprietary file formats.

    Not a number "limit", but that the number is "finite".


    There is a small spreadsheet in the examples that were included with the
    old TurboPascal/Borland Pascal and probably BorlandC. It is proprietary
    code, though. Published, but proprietary.

    It is the first complex source code I had a good look at.

    If you are allowed to use really ancient spreadsheet software the try
    visicalc

    It works on a DOS emulator known as dosbox . To install dosbox run the
    command
    Code:
    sudo zypper in dosbox

    you can get the program here :-
    http://www.bricklin.com/history/vcexecutable.htm
    tutorial for spreadsheet :-
    http://www.bricklin.com/history/refcard1.htm

    Dosbox usage :-
    start dosbox using command "dosbox"
    mount your download directory using command
    Code:
    mount c
    /home/<username>/Downloads
    and then type "c:"
    From there you can launch visicalc

    I did a demo worksheet and it works. Proof :-

    Now, that's a step back in time. I still remember my undergraduate days in the 80's playing with Fortran and arrays. (It was tedious.)

    Were you using very early version or something . From my screenshot you
    should have realised that the version of sw, I am talking about doesn't
    involve shift registers LOL It looks and feels like very modern
    spread sheet program and works like it too.

    Except that to find sum of content of few cells you cannot do
    Code:
    =B2+B3
    etc but use function
    Code:
    @sum(B2,B3)

    Yes, I remember it well because we had Apple II computers at high school.
