ANNOUNCE: wb, an Aviation Weight/Balance Calculator

Post by oofoe »

Hi!

Don't know if this is the best place to post this, but I did use this "in the real world" to compute my weight and balance for my flight yesterday...

This program makes it easy to do your weight and balance calculations so you can determine your position in the performance envelope before you take off into the wild blue yonder! Use it in conjunction with your Pilot's Operating Handbook to make sure you won't have any problems with your loading scenario.

Even if you're not interested in aviation per se, it may be interesting as a demonstration of setting up a spreadsheet-like interface with recalculation every time the user presses enter.

I am planning some improvements, but right now it does do all the computations. Comments and suggestions welcome!
Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.

Cool beans!
Cavemen in bearskins invaded the ivory towers of Artificial Intelligence. Nine months later, they left with a baby named newLISP. The women of the ivory towers wept and wailed. "Abomination!" they cried.
