Description
===========
The "Calc Lite" calculator is a freeware version of
the command line calculator included in the shareware
WarpCalc. The only major difference is that this version
is unsupported.
System requirements
===================
Calc Lite is a 32-bit OS/2 application and should run on
OS/2 version 2.x and above.

Documentation
=============
The calculator can be passed a mathematical expression as
a command line argument like this:
calc pi
The above command evaluates the name pi and displays the
result using default settings. It then immediately returns
to the command prompt.
It is also possible to enter more than one expression at
once, separating the different expressions with semicolons.
calc "x= atan 2; sin x/cos x; tan x - ans"
The first expression assigns the angle for tangens 2 to x.
In the following expression the value of x is used to
calculate tangens for x. The last expression should give
the result zero (ans holds the result from the previous
expression).
When starting the calculator without passing any
expressions the program will display a command prompt. From
that prompt you can evaluate mathematical expressions and
configure the calculators behavior. The prompt shows the
angular unit currently used. Online help can be displayed
by entering the internal command 'help'. For a list of
help topics enter: 'help ?'.
As a default the calculator uses a flexible result notation.
Except for fix point notation the default precision is 15
significant digits (fix point notation uses 15 decimals).
The default angle measurement unit used in conjunction with
the trigonometric functions is radian. The defaults can be
overridden through command line options as shown below.
[ /not sci|fix|eng ][ /prec <n> ][ /unit deg|rad|gra ]
To have the calculator use ANSI colors to highlight input
and results add the following switch.
[ /color ]
For U.S. based users there is also a switch to force the
calculator to use ISO signs for decimal separator,
multiplication and the division.
[ /iso ]
Defaults for the command line switches can be set through
the following environment variables: calc_not, calc_prec,
calc_unit, calc_iso and calc_color. The options are the same
as above except for calc_iso and calc_color, which take
either a yes or a no. All environment variables are case
insensitive.
The internal command line works as follows. A block cursor
indicates over-write mode and a line cursor insert mode.
Escape erases the current input. Input history can be
navigated with the up/down- keys.
