Re: light spreadsheet for stable?

You might want to look at either Abs or Abacus .....

Abacus has a deb package (meaning you can install it by typing apt-get install
abacus), and is only around 400k large after installation.

Abs hasn't been debianized AFAIK, and can be found here:
http://www.ping.be/bertin/abs.shtml .. it weighs in after compilation at around 700k,
although if you stripped the binary this would probably be a good deal smaller.

I haven't really messed with either one enough to be able to say which is better, but
from what you describe, one or the other might fit the bill for you.  Good luck.
