Expression Evaluation

Environment: VC 4.0/5.0

I made this code while working on a program for analyzing mathematical expressions, and I made some classes for making things easier.

See sample code: ; the programme was writen using MSVC 4.0 and compiled with MSVC 5.0

This classes can be used for evaluating expressions like :

1+4*(5+9) or

1+var1+var2*(5+b5), where var1 , var2 can be: numeric values or expressions or other numeric stuff. See the sample code.

The class hierarchy that I implemented is :

CExpression derived from CObject - represents a mathematical expression; use ChangeExpression to assign a string expression to the expression object

The folowing mathematical functions are known: sin, cos, exp, sqrt, log, tg, ctg, asin, acos, atg and the default operations like +, -,  *, /, ^ - (pow()); the abs function is implemented using: |expresion|.

CValue derived from CObject - represents a value; use SetValue/GetValue - to set / get the value, or UpdateValue to Update the value

CExpValue derived from CValue - represents a value that is defined by a expresion

CNumericValue derived from CValue - represents a simple numeric value

The best way of understanding the way that this classes are functioning is to see the sample project.

If you have some questions or you have some improvement ideas, or you find a bug please send me a mail to: or

See sample code:

  • Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), physical assets are turning into participants in real-time global digital markets. The countless types of assets around us will become as easily indexed, searched and traded as any online commodity. While some industries will be tougher to transform than others – those with physical limitations, such as manufacturing, will be harder to digitize – untold economic opportunities exist for growth and advancement. Our research shows this will create a new "Economy …

  • U.S. companies are desperately trying to recruit and hire skilled software engineers and developers, but there's simply not enough quality talent to go around. In response, companies often resort to inferior solutions -- hiring substandard developers and engineers, recruiting talent on a part-time or temporary basis, poaching people from competitors, or burdening an already stressed IT staff for more of their labor. Fortunately, there's a better solution. Read this white paper to learn the business value of …
