I want to install the command line spreadsheet sc. I would prefer to do with homebrew. I need both psc and sc commands. Is there a homebrew package? If not other methods would be good.

Your wish is my command!

Homebrew Formula: sc.rb

I'll try to get the formula merged into homebrew proper sometime this week.

In the meantime, you can simply:

brew install https://gist.github.com/geoff-codes/d8c16ada1de10e6387b3/raw/sc.rb

  • Well done. Please do go through the merge process. Mar 24, 2016 at 2:12

    I'd love to see your formula integrated into homebrew - I couldn't find it there as of yet. May 14, 2017 at 17:44

For all true fans of terminal-based editing, there are two basic chains to follow, all based on the so far last known original source Version 7.16 at ibiblio. The file you want is: sc-7.16.tar.gz

  1. sc-im, an improved version of sc, adding undo, sorting, filtering, subtotals, cell shifting and gnuplot graphics among other features while still remaining true to its origin. Can be installed following the instructions at its github-repository. Highly recommended!
  2. "pure" sc, which can be installed either directly, via Homebrew (several unofficial integrations, none of which merged into upstream yet), or through MacPorts.

You can get it via Macports

After you install Macports you can get sc with:

port install sc

(You might need sudo for this)

Here's the sc profile: https://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/finance/sc/Portfile
