With only ten buttons on the Programming Palette, Mathcad’s programming environment is easy to use. Nevertheless, this simplicity conceals a surprising amount of programming power. When combined with Mathcad’s rich numerical and symbolic functionality and used in conjunction with the abstract data structures provided by Mathcad’s nested arrays, these ten operators enable you to write sophisticated programs in Mathcad.
The following figures illustrate just a few of the possibilities. As you experiment with programming in Mathcad, you’ll discover many new applications. For further programming examples, see the “Programming” topic in the Resource Center QuickSheets. And in Mathcad Professional the Resource Center includes a special section, “The Treasury Guide to Programming,” which includes detailed examples and applications to show you how to get more out of Mathcad programs.
