sc: the Venerable Spreadsheet Calculator

Unread postby necron2600 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 9:48 am

I was trying to find the old (ancient now? as old as Hamei?) sc spreadsheet..but no luck except from SGI's old freeware.
I had a hard time getting the freeware tardist verison installed without installing more bits from the old freeware collection.. I want to keep only nekoware as much as possible.

So I compiled it with MIPSPro on IRIX 6.5.29
I apologize if someone else already did this....

# shared libs...
ldd /usr/local/bin/sc
libm.so => /usr/lib32/libm.so
libncurses.so => /usr/nekoware/lib/libncurses.so
libc.so.1 => /usr/lib32/libc.so.1

The neko_ncurses package I have is version 4 (not ncurses version 4, but SGI's package versioning):
versions -n neko_ncurses
I neko_ncurses 4 ncurses 5.7 GNU Curses Library

Attached is a tarball.. it installs to usr/local/ but you could just take the sc binary itself and run it alone.
I also attached a mini manual on SC I found online.

Note.. IRIX' Winterm did not play well with it. in particular the 'enter' key did not work. But xterm works fine.
xterm -bg black -fg white -e /usr/local/bin/sc
# xterm from /usr/bin/X11/xterm

Xspread (X11 sc) attached. Compiled with MIPSpro on IRIX 6.5.29. mips4
Uses libintl.so.9, libiconv.so.3 from nekoware
Xspread seems to be based on version 6.x of sc, so its slightly older.

Also, there are far better X11 spreadsheet apps avail.. so I do not see much use of Xspread.. but at least command line 'sc' has some use for those that are die-hard vi guys and want to do things from a terminal.

X11 version of sc (its 6.x though)
