Hi,

Maybe the Help content for functions could be used as a reference template with some automation to combine it with math background etc. to finally produce a separate handbook? Just thinking of how to avoid repetition of work and human errors.

I agree that it would be good to create a separate handbook to describe
Calc's functions and I will spend time creating a first draft of this
during the coming months.

The mathematical definition of most of the functions is in the standard. It would be far too error-prone and far too time-consuming to write these definitions ourself. The help pages could get links to the HTML version of the standard or a reference with part and section number.

We need a mathematical description of those functions, which are our own function, e.g. EASTERSUNDAY. Those functions should get each an own help page with the mathematical definition or a page in the WIKI.

Some of our own functions are designed for to be compatible with Excel and have differences to similar functions in the standard. For those functions it is important to describe these differences.

In general, the fact, whether a function follows the standard or is compatible to Excel or is totally our own function, should be noted.

So in your view, the function reference could be removed from Calc guide book and forget the idea to create a separate handbook? It would certainly make things easier for book authors.
