I'm trying to figure out this bc calculator, but the man page doesn't seem to be very helpful to me.  Can I just get a quick and simple example of a short bc program for the SunOS 5.7 version?

         scale = 20
          define e(x){
               auto a, b, c, i, s
               a = 1
               b = 1
               s = 1
               for(i=1; 1==1; i++){
                    a = a*x
                    b = b*i
                    c = a/b
                    if(c == 0) return(s)
                    s = s+c

          for(i=1; i<=10; i++) e(i)

Thanx.  I tried that earlier, but was being a dummy and didn't put the last line that prints everything out in there.  Duh.
