specifications

calc.pl is a download-and-use terminal calculator. It is handy, easily extendable, and tape-like. It comes with most of the usual and some financial and physical functions.

Yes, there is a lot of calculators for linux on the web.

Once I was looking for something simple, fast to use, something where you can see the history of operations (tape calculator like gtapecalc), with minimum use of mouse, I didnot succeed. Most of the calculators are GUI - means that functions you must use the mouse or learn some shortcuts.

Non-GUIs look too complicated (like Easy Stack Calculator) or look too simple (like lcalc).

There are "linux-built-in" things like bc (arbitrary precision calculator language) or octave, but their purpose is a little bit different from what I wanted.

Here are some key features of "calc pl":

No instalation, just download.
Runs in terminal = fast copy-paste and/or remote operation.
Fast quit with Ctrl-c
Line editing, acces to previously issued commands
Help command from prompt. Just type "help"
Standard functions (goniometric, logs) and some special functions
Default operations (repeating operations modes)

Requirements:

Perl

What's New in This Release:

A bug in the goniometric functions was fixed.
The ability to use decimal commas was added along with a few fancy features, including automatic terminal-tab name, saving history on Ctrl-C, and better help.
