Hm.  After thinking a bit more about how to implement that I think I'll
remove the support for string-as-values.  They're not even nearly as useful
as binary/hex/dec support and supporting strings properly would require
quite a bit more code/complexity to the tokenizer function.

If you need string-as-value calculations, you can use my old calculator:
