Console based notepad number cruncher makes calculations fast and simple, yet with ample features under the hood. With log turned on, you can record your session on-the-fly from any open instance of the program.


  • Minimal initialization steps enables fast launching of the program.
  • Ignores meaningless characters so you can put comments and text within the calculation, or simply use it as a note-taking tool. The program picks out patterns matching variable names, numbers and operators to return a relevant answer.
  • Designed to log session line-by-line. If log is turned on, it automatically saves each line to disk.
  • Aims to avoid using external dependencies to keep the application self-contained and portable between operating systems.
  • Convenient shell-scripting utility or shell calculator -- takes commandline arguments and passes them to calculator the same as commands entered at the prompt, so quick single-line expressions can be evaluated and immediately returned.
  • Allows access to system commands so shell commands and scripts can be invoked from the calculator shell.
  • A classic problem with other CLI calculators is a need to use "" when passing arguments with shell operators. This application aims to provide alternate operators so fast calcs can be passed with minimal keystrokes. Example: Allows use of '[]' and '{}' interchangeably with '()' to work around conflicts when passing arguments from the shell.
  • Define and use variables.
  • Behaves like a shell, so you can scroll back to see past calculations. Up/Down keys repeat commands.
