At Gamall's suggestion, I'm going to keep this one extremely simple, by limiting it to what I understand in human form rather than using the transcendant knowledge offered to be my the Fire Gods as a thank you after I went pyromaniac and completely razed Vvardenfell. Yeah, the Daedra found that pretty funny, too. (Say, did anyone else notice, how The Elder Scrolls actually has very little to do with scrolls of any age, plot-wise?)
So, you know how server configs use these numbers to calculate which force powers, weapons, etc are enabled or disabled? Yeah.
Well. Let's touch on what this does. Basically, it lets you use text, which will be automatically translated by this add-on into numbers the dedicated server can understand, making it simpler for you without making it harder for the server. You see, it works by- waaat a minute....
If you want to know more, download the file, grab a coffee (or six ;) ) and start reading the full readme file - I truncated the on-site version to save space and prevent people from getting carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of repeatedly whacking PageDown and/or rapidly scrolling their mouse wheel. :p
It's basically a bitvalue calculator, without the bitvalues. So it's more like a bitvalue translator. Ah hah! That's a nice simple way of saying it. "Bitvalue translator". Yeah!

CONTACT ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + BRIEF DESCRIPTION +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + m.E.M.E (pronounce m-ee-m-ee) stands for "Minimalist Evaluator for Mathematical Expressions". And that is exactly what it is. 'Evaluator for Mathematical Expressions' because its purpose is to compute mathematical expressions. For instance "2+2" yields 4. Less trivially, "let x = pi/2 in 1+ sqrt cos (x/2)" yields 1.84089641525. It is meant to be used as a library for other programs, but the standalone executable can be used as a command-line calculator and a preprocessor for configuration files. 'Minimalist' because there are points which make it simpler and faster (it is *very* fast) but limit its range: -> It uses floating-point arithmetic (64bits, as per OCaml `float' type) instead of exact arithmetic, hence a loss of precision on some expressions: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 4.63246686343E-08 + 1 + exp(2+sin(log(cos( acos(-pi/2+tan(atan(pi))-1))))) /sqrt(pi*5E15) > 1.00000009265 exp(2+sin(log(cos( acos(-pi/2+tan(atan(pi))-1))))) /sqrt(pi*5E15) - 4.63246686343E-08 + 1 > 1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -> It supports variables but not functions. So while you can write ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ let x = pi/2 in 1+ sqrt cos (x/2) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ... you can't write anything like ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ let f(x) = 1+ sqrt cos (x/2) in f(pi/2) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -> It does not support any kind of loops. So for instance there is no sum (big Sigma symbol in math) or product (big Pi symbol), because that kind of functionality couldn't be added elegantly to the program. This is a consequence of the previous point. -> It is not, of course, a system for symbolic computation. + THE PACKAGE +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + - The Source Code -~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o - The source code for m.E.M.E is released under the GNU General Public License. This program is written in Objective Caml, using ocamllex and ocamlyacc to build the lexer and the parser. - The Binaries -~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o - m.E.M.E is shipped with statically compiled binaries for GNU/Linux, which may or may not work on your own system. If they don't you will just have to compile it from source. You will need an OCaml compiler. In most cases, you will just need to run the build script in the /src directory. The Windows binary should work on any Windows system from 95 on. + CONTACT +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + If you need help, or have suggestions, comments, insults, praise or in general, anything to say about this program you expect me to read and answer to, please post on the program's topic on my website: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ http://gamall-ida.com/f/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=396 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Do NOT, *EVER*, contact me by mail unless I specifically ask you to do so, or if my forum is unavailable for a long time. + END OF FILE +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + +-----------------------------+ | File generated with 'GaTeX',| | an ASCII typesetting system | | by Gamall Wednesday Ida. | | http://gamall-ida.com | +-----------------------------+ Build: Tue Apr 15 15:53:03 2008 File : F:readme-mEME.GaTeX.source
