Command Line Calculator is general purpose calculator.
Calculations are entered on command line and result is produced after
pressing enter – see picture on right of typical calculations.
The main features of the program are:
calculation, unlimited length
can be used
can define own functions
and opening previous calculations
file and history list
numbers are supported: decimal, hex, octal and binary
operations are supported
70 in build functions available
There is no limit to the length of expression, which can be entered
into calculation. Program supports variables and most of the typical
functions like trigonometric functions, logarithms, basic operations
and so on, see more details from the help page.
One can set variables. For example writing w=98, sets w’s value
to 98. Variables can then be used later in calculations. For example
w+3 would give 101. There is also separate window for variables, which
can be used together with main window. See under menu item
User defined functions
User can set his or hers functions. For example f(x)=x+2*sin(x). See
picture on right for more details.
User can set multi variable functions. User can also call earlier
defined functions in the later functions. For example in the picture on
right one can see that function “y” is used also in the
One can also do one variable plots with plot command. In the picture is
shown functions “sin(x)/x”, “sin(1.2*x)/x” and
“sin(1.4*x)/x”. User can zoom and pan the plot with
mouse’s left and right button and with double click – see
picture on right.
All calculations are stored into history list, from where one get them
by pressing space bar.
and saving calculations
User can save his or hers strings into a file and use them later.
file and history list
All calculations are stored into a history list. One can access these
calculations by pressing space bar. These calculations are also saved
into a temporary file. So when program is started again one can access
previously calculated functions if needed.
One can calculate how many days there are between two dates or what is
a date, when certain number of days are added or deleted from a date.
See picture on right.
operations like and, or, xor, not, eqv, imp and shifting is also
supported. One can combine these operations and functions with other in
build and user defined functions.
right one can see available statistical calculations. Following
functions are supported:
minimum of user entered data set
maximum of user entered data set
of elements: is number of user entered numbers
Mean: mean or average of user entered data set
is the middle value of the user entered numbers, when all numbers have
been put into order from smallest to biggest.
Sum of all user entered numbers
square: Sum of square of user entered numbers
Maximum value minus minimum value, it provides indication of
deviation: Standard deviation is measure of variability or dispersion
of data set. Standard deviation is square root of variance
Variance is square of standard deviation - see above
Kurtosis is measure of peakedness of data set
Skewness is measure of asymmetry of user entered data
mean: User entered numbers (n numbers) are multiplied and then nth root
is taken from the result.
Mid range is average of maximum and minimum values
Alltogether over 70 in build functions
readily available. And user can add upto 1000 own functions
