Full description '''Calc''' is an arbitrary precision arith'''Calc''' is an arbitrary precision arithmetic system that uses a C-like language. It's useful as a calculator, an algorithm prototype, and as a mathematical research tool. More importantly, calc provides a machine-independent means of computation. Its features include: * Arbitrary precision integers and floating-point, fractions and complex values * Logarithm, numeric, trig, hyperbolic functions * C-like syntax * calc shell scripts, resource files, linkable program library * User defined finctions and function loading * Over 283 built-in functions plus hooks for built-in custom extensions * Arrays, lists, dynamic strings, matrices, associate arrays, objects * Numeric, relational, boolean and variable access operators * Extensive string and binary block memory builtin functions * Matrix inversion, determinant, and other matrix operations * Fast and cryptographic pseudo-random numbers, cryptographic hashes * Factoring, primality tests, pi(x), multiplicative inverse, modular exp * Bernoulli numbers, Euler numbers, Catalan numbers * Uses REDC, splint-point and other high speed multi-precision algorithms * Extensive regression test suite * Resource functions: large prime tests, factoring, quaternions, etc. * File I/O, multi-precision printf and scanf, stdio-like functions * [[GNU Readline]], user & system startup scripts, [[Emacs]]-style line editing * Online help[[Emacs]]-style line editing * Online help
