I believe it would be quite easy to implement a standalone OpenFormula evaluator. Parsing it is intentionally easy, and there are only a few simple data types. The predefined OpenFormula functions are often, unsurprisingly, functions that are already implemented in other languages (including Java). Small-group in particular is really easy, and compiler-compiler tools (such as ANTLR) should make it especially easy to prep one. Is there a particular programming language, license, or use case you have in mind? --- David A. Wheeler
