I'm an rc newbie too, I like the associative arrays.
The code looks ok to me - but I wouldn't know!

Do we really have to use bc for simple arithmetic in rc?
There is filename pattern matching in the shell, but not arithmetic?

I would prefer to have some builtin arithmetic commands -
it's a 'computer' after all. Don't mind if the command is out
front like v=`{+ $v 1} or + v $v 1
