This program produces a table of a function of x. It can understand
all of the normal arithmetic operators (use ^ for "to the power of"
and % for "the remainder of"), parentheses, and a few functions:
s(x) sine of x (where x is in radians)
c(x) cosine of x (where x is in radians)
a(x) arctangent of x (returns result in radians)
l(x) natural (base e) logarithm of x
e(x) exponential of x
j(n,x) n-th order Bessel function of x (where n is an integer)
sqrt(x) square root of x (x >= 0
