Symbol % as an percentage operator (instead of perc( , ) function) for a natural mathematical notation

It would be very good to use the symbol % for percentaje operations (as a natural mathematical notation).


25% = 0.25     (natural math notation)


In this moment, it is used the funcion perc. The previous operation woudl be written: perc(25,1) to obtain the result 0.25

But, the natural way to write percentages is using %. This manner is used in Mathcad (as in the previous example) and I would like it to be implemented in Smath Studio. This is important for me, to create manuals and material for students.


In advance, thank you very much.

The following unit added to standard SMath Studio package: '%=10^-2.

As for now if you want you can use perc(1) from Functions' Extension plugin
