mc (MacroCALC) or "321" is a powerful Lotus compatible character based spreadsheet that supports 1000 rows, 64 columns, 40 functions, 8 display formats, file linking, macro programming and user definable functions. MacroCALC is fully integrated with [nt]roff, units, man, awk, perl and sh. As it should be in the UNIX-environment, mc can act as a filter enabling users to use pipes to perform complex transforms on streams of data. It is free for Linux with no support.

An unique feature of mc that scientists/engineers might find interesting is the capability of handling units.
