Eike Rathke updated OFFICE-2470:
--------------------------------

Summary: 3.2 Expression Calculation is a mixure of observations, rules and possible suggestions  (was: 2.2 Expression Calculation is a mixure of observations, rules and possible suggestions)
Description:
3.2 Expression Calculation is a mixture of observations, rules and possible suggestions.

For example, it starts by saying formulas are recalculated from "outside in," only to confess a few paragraphs later that is how it "appears to the end user."

There is one really glaring hole in my proposal, that also exists in the current language.

We describe the ordering of operators but as far as I can tell, we don't address the situation where there is a mixture of operators and functions.

Note that I changed #1 from constant number/string and added error.

As near as I can determine, the only possible outcomes of any expression are:

1) a number

2) a string

3) an error

4) a reference

So, application of these rules self-terminates when any of those conditions obtain.

Yes, that removes "constant number," "constant string" but those are defined elsewhere anyway.
