languages that I thought it just might work. I took a look at the Calculate
in NoteTab topic and the e notation is not mentioned at all.
The exponentiation operator ^ is, though_
+ , - , * , / , ^ , MOD, DIV
Nowhere is it stated that the up arrow is exponentiation. But that is very
likely given that the other operator people often use for it in langs like
Fortran or Perl, that is **, is not mentiond at all. If ** is exponentiation
or there's no such thing, ^ is often the bitwise logical exclusive or. But
NoteTAb clips store every datatype as text and currently there are no
bitwise operators to my knowledge.
