I recently download a copy of bc 1.06 from GNU.org. For some reason I don’t understand, setting the –l option to get access to the bc mathlib doesn’t work. As soon as I enter anything on the command line, bc crashes. I have untarred and remade and installed the download into /c/mingw/msys/1.0/bin but this hasn’t proven successful either. If I don’t set the –l option and just invoke bc without the mathlib the program behaves nicely. Any suggestions? I have googled for several hours now and come up with nothing. Maybe this is a question for the bc folks? If so, my apologies.
