  • Scientific Notation

    I am currently trying to compare two text files. The issue is that some of number strings in one text file are represented in scientific notation but not in the other file. The numbers strings are equivalent but are flagged as different. Is there a way around this within BC? Any help would appreciated. Thanks.

    Re: Scientific Notation

    Our DataViewer plug-in, which takes in .csv files, supports scientific notation with e/E and an optional +/-.

    Examples:
    1.4E+2, or 1.4e2

    Are your text files formatted in such a way you could use our DataViewer plug-in?

    One easy way to format (and test this functionality) is with a comma deliminated list, or an exported .csv from Excel.

    You can also use our additional Rules to detect .xls files and automatically convert them to .csv
