Prefix Calculator

Created by Xaviar Czervik. Do whatever you wish with this function: Sell it (good luck), use it, or modify it.

Evaluates an expression in prefix notation. I will give a few examples, and let you figure it out yourself. You have a brain: use it.

+ 1 2 = 3

+ - 1 2 3 = 2

/ + 3 2 - +1 2 3 = 1.25

Another prefix calculator script is the Chatbot sample. That script is much less simple, because it handles many more varieties of input, but that script exhibits essentially this same control flow.
