Ralcalc 1.3.2

Command-line calculator
Ralcalc is a simple command-line calculator software designed to take a single line input and produce a result.

For example:

= 2*9
2*9 = 18

Both the input and output make use of SI prefixes (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI_prefix) for easier input and reading of results. Only the common engineering prefixes that are powers a multiple of three are used, so G, M, k, m, u, n, etc.

Numbers of the style 1e-3 are also supported for input.

Version information can be shown with:

= -h
ralcalc -h
