Referencing vCalc Content in Formulas

One of vCalc's very powerful features is the ability to utilize a token (Equation, Constant or Dataset) from within a token.  This lets you use capabilities without having to recreate them from scratch.  Every good programmer quickly learns to call subroutines instead of duplicating code and to hold data in dataset instead of creating local tables and arrays.  Since vCalc enables user to share equations, constants and datasets, this make the concept even stronger.  You can use your own Equations, Constants and Datasets when building your own suite of calculators or you can benefit from the work of others with calls to their equations, constants and datasets.

The following articles explain how to use equations, constants and datasets from within your equations and constants.
