I wanted a Python-able spreadsheet. Gnumeric was presented as one of them,
but it is just too big for me, besides a good weight of attracting and
useful chrome. It comes with its own, rather full language. I would prefer
sticking with Python, as far as learning languages goes.
Having a spreadsheet integrated in my own usual editor, Emacs, was also
tempting. As I wrote before, Pymacs provides me with the Pythonish link I
want to have handy if I ever need complex or flexible functions for
computing cells. So, all considered, I went the Emacs way. On the Emacs
spreadsheet side, before SES, I gave Dismal a try, but found it bigger than
what I need, it also had stability problems. Table is useful for entering
tabular data, but is not designed as a spreadsheet, and lacks functionality
as such. I am fairly satisfied with SES, and I may stretch SES for a while
before I feel its limits, which I guess might be a loss of speed when
handling very long spreadsheets.
Let me append a few (maybe oldish) random references and notes below. :-)
