Calcute: Tape Calculator

#1 Post by risk » Tue Aug 22, 2006 7:29 pm

Here's a calc.exe replacement. A regular and scientific calculator with tape.

More info and download from http://calcute.com/index.html

You'll need to use the Universal Extractor method because the Author provides only an Installer download.

Sorry I had to submit an app with "cute" in its name but I thought it might be useful for some!

I've learned, over time, that you should never judge an app by it's title. Some poorly or obscurely named apps often turn out to be real gems.

Posted to the database. I like it!

I wish it had decimal <> hex <> binary conversion.

Big-number library!

I came across something interesting with this program. Try this:

Code: Select all

11111222223333344444333332222211111 * 2
  22,222,444,446,666,688,888,666,664,444,422,222
It looks like it uses a big-number library internally since all digits are retained. The web site already says that it uses rational arithmetic to prevent rounding errors. Using an unlimited number of digits is pretty cool as well. I'm not certain why results are sometimes shown with all digits as above and why in general they appear as 2.22224444467e+34 instead. I think it has to do with the possibility/impossibility of representing results with complete accuracy. If it's not possible then scientific notation is used, apparently.
