Numerical Cruncher

                    No JDK 1.2 support for APPLET!!

  crunch [from The Jargon File]: vi. To process, usually in a time-consuming or complicated way. Connotes an essentially trivial operation that is nonetheless painful to perform. The pain may be due to the triviality's being embedded in a loop from 1 to 1,000,000,000. "FORTRAN programs do mostly {number-crunching}."
