The table editor makes use of the Emacs `calc` package to implement
spreadsheet-like capabilities. It can also evaluate Emacs Lisp forms to
derive fields from other fields. While fully featured, Org's implementation
is not identical to other spreadsheets. For example, Org knows the concept
of a *column formula* that will be applied to all non-header fields in a
column without having to copy the formula to each relevant field. There is
also a formula debugger, and a formula editor with features for highlighting
fields in the table corresponding to the references at the point in the
formula, moving these references by arrow keys
