    You should spend more time discovering it's functionalities, your assertion is far from being valid.
    0 + 1 = 1 != 2 <> 3 != 4 ...
    Until the camel can pass though the eye of the needle.

    I think Calc is a perfect choice for all of your needs. All you've mentioned can be done in Calc - of course with a little programing efforts/skills. I've done all that but the lookup.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
