Well, this is actually the topic's subject. Is it possible to tell LaTeX to do the calculations by itself, without going to an external program (perl or anything else) ? I'm not a perl user, so I would hate to learn another new thing (especially programmation) just to do some LaTeX documents.

I heavily program Mathematica (and a bit Maple), and I was also programming LUA a long time ago (I forgot almost everything from LUA). Having to learn or re-learn programming with various syntaxes and rules is a huge pain in the arse! :x
