    Re: Yet another 4-place Nat-Haversine Table project?

    Not sure OOCalc is the best tool to use but if i were making such a
    table I would write a program that would print LaTeX to and ASCII
    file. That way
    perfect typesetting and nice equations including pretty over bars. I
    dont mean to sound critical, I was just thinking how I would do it.

    "bar-notation" and, say, four-places rounding.
