Re: Excel/gnumeric function compat test sheet.

I am definently willing to help on this. However, I would prefer that it
be organized (in a web page or something). My idea is to get a list of
all functions (am willing to send Excel97 this weekend) and people could
claim functions. That way we won't duplicate effort or neglect uncommon
functions. If I claim a function, I know I can invest the time to try
and write good test cases. Perhaps we need the excel version. (BTW, what
is the policy for changes in functions - to what version does gnumeric
match? And functions that are just plain wrong in excel?)

Anyway, I am willing to invest the time in this, but I hope that it will
be organized. Even without a web page, tell me who to send to, and stuff
like that. What would you want me to do? Check the functions in Excel or
both Gnumeric and Excel?
(I'm thinking writing test cases in excel, and writing the value next to
them, but I'm not about adding the gnumeric value)

Subject: Excel/gnumeric function compat test sheet.

I am slowly putting together a workbook that tests each function that Excel
has.  It will be used to see how close gnumeric is to being a clone.  So
far, with some feedback from Jody, I have 66 tests for the first three
functions alphabetically from Excel 97.

Please feel free to e-mail the list with any of your favourite functions and
more specifically, excel sheets that have a test case that you want tested
or you know currently don't work.

This is an extremely important project for gnumeric and is ideal for
users who may not want to start programming in C.   Please contact
the list if you can help here.  The faster we can break the
functions the sooner we can get them finished.
