i'm thinking somewhere between numerical and eval lies my answer but i'm still not getting it.

I get close..but not right.

I'd like to compare the command line augments to see if it's a mathematical equation and if so echo %@eval the augments

and if it's not mathematic do a google search on the string..

i'm sure it's simple for you programmers and those long experienced with tcc.. but i can't figure it out.

can someone show me how it should be done? hopefully i'll then pickit up and understand it once i see it done.
