Bc

https://www.gnu.org/software/bc/
Interactive algebraic language

'Bc' is an arbitrary precision numeric processing language. Its syntax is similar to C, but differs in many substantial areas. It supports interactive execution of statements. 'Bc' is a utility included in the POSIX P1003.2/D11 draft standard. This version does not use the historical method of having bc be a compiler for the dc calculator (the POSIX document doesn't specify how bc must be implemented). This version has a single executable that both compiles the language and runs the resulting 'byte code.' The byte code is not the dc language.
