Hi all,

I've just released LXL (Like Excel) 0.1.0, a mini-language that mimics
Microsoft Excel formulas. It can be easily extended with new constants and
functions.

http://www.rubyforge.org/projects/lxl/

Install
-------

  gem install lxl

Usage
-----

  formulas = %{
    ((1+2)*(10-6))/2;
    DATETIME("2004-11-22 11:11:00")=DATE(2004,11,22)+TIME(11,11,00);
    IN(" is ", "this is a string");
    LIST(1, "two", 3.0);
    IN("b", LIST("a", "b", "c"));
    AND(TRUE, NULL);
    OR(TRUE, FALSE);
    IF(1+1=2, "yes", "no");
  }

  # single formula
  puts LXL.eval('5+5').inspect
  # => 10

  # multiple formulas separated by semi-colon
  puts LXL.eval(formulas).inspect
  # => [6, true, true, [1, "two", 3.0], true, false, true, "yes"]

See API docs for more information.

Kevin
