#83 Binary mode isn't really binary

calc basic (17)

Dear Maintainer,
In formula input mode:
In binary mode, the expression '10' evaluates to 1010 while it
should evaluate to 10, and the expression '2' evaluates to 10
but it shouldn't be accepted.

    Thank you for your message. Formula entry mode reads number inputs always as decimal numbers, regardless of the current number mode (decimal, hex, binary etc.). For entering binary numbers, prefix them by a "0b". You will find more information in the documentation on the homepage,


    best, simon
