# Equation Converter 0.2.3

Converts equations from standard mathematical notation, to javascript notation.

## Capabilities

- Removes white space. For example
`2 + 5x = 2+5x`

- Supports use of the caret sign ("^") to indicate power. For example
`x^2 = pow(x,2)`

- Handles implied multiplication. For example
`2x = 2*x, 3(4) = 3*(4)`

- Right-parenthesis followed by left-parenthesis, number*, variable, function, or constant.
- Number followed by left-parenthesis, variable, function, or constant
- Variable followed by left-parenthesis, number*, variable, function, or constant
- Constant followed by left-parenthesis, number*, variable, function, or constant

* Asterisks indicates non-standard formations in mathematics such as `(5+2)8`

instead of `8(5+2)`

. These are (by choice) interpreted as multiplication.

## Version history

Version 0.2.4: Replaced used of `const`

with `var`

since only Mozilla recognizes it. Replaced `eval`

with better code.

Version 0.2.3: Added support for negative sign following caret. For example, `x^-2 = pow(x,-2)`

. Note that negative sign *preceding* caret is not supported (by choice), i.e. `-x^2 = -(x^2)`

instead of `(-x)^2`

. This is in keeping with behavior of most hand-held graphing calculators.

Version 0.2.2: Bug fix regarding mishandling of constants and numbers preceding caret.

Version 0.2.1: Bug fixes: added implied multiplication for constant followed by number, stopped reserved constants LOG2E and LOG10E from becoming LOG2*E and LOG10*E, fixed mishandling of constants and functions preceding caret.

Version 0.2: Addded support for use of caret sign ("^") as power operator.

Version 0.1: Added support for implied multiplication and removes white space.
