LAMBDA function is going to be released to Excel eventually. This presents an opportunity to create a set of user-defined functions in Excel. If a standard set of functions with an eye toward golfing is defined, could this be considered to be a separate language? This seems like it would be similar to something like tinylisp.
There are a few types of functions that I was considering for this language.
- Current Excel functions with shorter name (just this would be boring)
- Functions with better error handling. For example,
COMBIN(3,4)could return 0 instead of #NUM.
- Functions that are useful for golfing but missing from Excel. These include prime test, count of characters in a string, and splitting on a delimiter, to name a few.
Are there any suggestions to make this better?
