Calculator (Gcalctool)

Desktop calculator with basic, financial, and scientific modes

  • " Renamed to Calculator "

'gcalctool' is the desktop calculator that has been proposed for GNOME 2.4. It has Basic, Financial and Scientific modes. calculations are performed from left to right, with no arithmetic precedence. If you need arithmetic precedence, then you should use parentheses. Internal arithmetic is done with multi-precision floating point numbers. Accuracy can be adjusted from zero to nine numeric places in fixed notation, but numbers can be displayed in engineering and scientific notation as well. The base of operation can change between binary, octal, decimal and hexadecimal. There are ten memory registers. Numbers can be stored or retrieved in these locations, and arithmetic can be performed upon register contents.
