Calculations and their meaning

In contrast to the classical calculators, Bricks allows you to express calculations in a few lines in a meaningful and connected way.

This makes Bricks somewhat similar to Excel.

To be more useful, Bricks allows you to mix calculations and text. It scans for calculations inside the text and if found expression grammatically correct, Bricks will calculate it and display the result.

(See grammar page for more information about available expressions).

Reusable results


Reusable results

It's possible to reuse obtained results (declared on the upper lines), by clicking on them. After you click on the result, it is placed into the current position where the cursor is located. Note that reused results cannot be edited directly. In order to change them you need to change their original expressions.

Note also, that original expression can itself be composed of other reused results.

There is also another way to reuse values, through the use of named variables.

View modes

Bricks has two modes to display results:

  • Line mode - result is placed under the current line (i.e. under the calculation).
  • Column mode - result is placed on the same line (as the calculation), but in the separate column.
