Why was this calculator created?
This calculator was created to have easy integration into web applications. There are many advanced
standards compliant unless a specific browser is being used (Internet Explorer to be exact). Not only
is it W3C and MSDN (for IE) standards compliant, but the code itself has a consistent format. All
same way. What this calculator aims to do is to work in every condition, be standards compliant, and
when the code is searched through it is very easy to read. Not only that but it is heavily commented
to explain the different functions and features from within. The calculator should work on all
Whats new in 1.2.8? (02/17/2008)
1. Removed the trademark symbol from "Scientific Calculator" because it is not a legally
2. Removed my name from the title of the calculator page because I thought it was unnecessary. It
was there from when I first programmed it back in 2005 and I just simply never payed attention
to it. For production use it doesn't need to be there.
1. Programmed new key functionality so the calc is now fully compatible with Safari and Opera
as well as Firefox, IE, Mozilla, and Netscape. Hot keys work in all of those browsers. Any
unsupported browsers including but not limited to Konqueror probably don't have proper key
functionality with the calculator. Functionality for Konqueror will be coming soon.
2. The pow( function is no longer seen by the user. Now the user can literally type 2^3 and the
answer will be 8! No need to deal with the confusion of typing pow(2,3).
3. The x^y button now inserts the '^' character instead of "pow("
4. Pressing the carrot key insterts a '^' symbol into the calculator display.
2. Minor revisions and spelling corrections.
3. Made a pretty new logo for the Calculator documentation.
4. Added a contributor page under About Author folder to recognise some of those who have
directly helped me with either development, testing, or conceptual design (ideas).
5. Reindexed the search to reflect changes.
