annoying Number() function

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to write a script which uses the number() function.

Basically, the program is supposed grab the clipboard, which will already have a mathematical expression (e.g "5 + 5") and then solve it and send() the answer.

This is what I have so far:

$a=clipget()

$b=number($a)

send($:)

However, because the expression in the clipboard is read as a string, the number function isn't solving the expression.

Instead, when I have an expression like "256 - 4", it would simply output "256" as it reads it as a string and cuts everything after the sign.

Any hints on how to solve this problem?

Try using Execute instead:

Send(Execute(ClipGet()))

Edit:

Doh, cppman beat me too it. :)
