fNBookForm2 prints a number in Textbook Form with powers abbreviations in place of exponents (default). Output is a compressed dressed form textbooks use for significant figures tables. Easy, quality, comprehensive. booknum reads such.
an important aspect is that the result maintains both accuracy and precision and has rounding control. doing this sometimees requires careful planning (error-prone complicated conversions).
can read them back from textbook (into Mathematica) preservingly
(for historic reasons files were also in https://sourceforge.net/projects/periodictablemm/)
- fNBookForm2 prints a number in a short textbook format without loosing precision
- fNBookForm2 maintains Accuracy, Precision, Rounding choice , +
- fNBookForm formats numbers with scientific abreviations for compactness
- fNBookForm2 width, rounding, showprec, fill, sigzeros, commas, sep
- fNBookForm2Arb suggest prettier form for Arbitrary numbers
- booknum can read/interpret printed booknumbers from book (more loosely than to write them)
- 1.5 is Mathematica 11.0 and 4.0 compatible
- Mathematica 11.0 still does not do well or at all what the pkg does (a special purpose); ie to find a same but more compact representation, to save paper and eyes, or to interpret such a number back from a book
- also useful for seeing/using full numberic info of a number without mm cell formatting
