Although the graphical schematic editor recognises upper and lower case, the actual Spice simulator is not case sensitive, so both m and M are recognised as "milli". You can use "meg" for mega, eg. 2.2meg, or the exponential notation 2.2e6. Also, it does not understand notation like 4k7, which it will interpret as 4k - you have to put 4.7k
  thanks for the explanation, which confirms my suspects.
Yes, indeed the engine at the core of the various Spice incarnations seems to be the original, character-based, work that you mention. as demonstrated by browsing the output file... thanks God they provided a back end !
BTW, the same apparently is true also for the "visual" NEC
implementations, they are just wrappers for the old (but
still quite valid) Fortran (remember that?) engine that does all the
dirty work of computation, while the wrapper
dances and sings all the melodies of the GUI... :-)
