ICalc v. 1.00 (13/8/1996, Ian Prest) Readme/What's new
ICalc v1.00 Copyright (C) 1996 by Ian Prest All rights reserved. What is ICalc? -------------- ICalc is a small, fast, FREE!, calculator-type program. How often have you wanted to make simple calculations, and not had a calculator handy? And how often have you resorted to starting QBasic or the Windows Calculator to make these simple calculations? ICalc has two modes - command-line mode and interactive mode. If you don't enter any command-line parameters, ICalc automatically enters interactive mode. ICalc is very simple, and was written in a couple of hours while I was trying to learn how to use YACC. Some of the code was stolen from HTML-Ed, and some was stolen from another project of mine, so I don't have too much time invested in it. So, I've decided to make it freeware. It's still very useful, however; I use it all the time. How to use ICalc: ----------------- From the command-line: ICalc <expression> where <expression> is any mathematical expression recognized by ICalc (whitespace is not allowed on the command line). From interactive mode: At the '>' prompt, enter any mathematical expression recognized by ICalc and press enter (whitespace is allowed in interactive mode). The result will be displayed. To access the command-line history, use the up and down arrows from the ICalc '>' prompt. To exit interactive mode, press enter at a blank '>' prompt. Recognized Expressions ---------------------- ICalc recognized the following operators: '+' and '-' for addition and subtraction '*' and '/' for multiplication and division '(' and '[' parentheses (the square brackets are merely for convenience) '%' for the remainder of a division '=' for variable assignment A variable name can be any combination of alpha-numeric characters (with the exception that it can't start with a number). Variables are _not_ case sensitive. The special variable "ans" holds the last answer that ICalc gave. Examples ICalc Output -------- ------------ 4+4 = 8 m=3 = 3 6+m = 9 hello=(4*5)+10 = 30 hello+3 = 33 7%3 = 1 ans+3 = 4 ans+3 = 7 Limitations ----------- ICalc currently does not handle floating-point math. It might at some point in the future, when/if I feel like adding it. I may also, at some point, extend its capabilities to include _infinite precision_ floating point math, when/if I feel like porting my infinite precision math library to C from either Basic or Pascal. License & Disclaimer -------------------- ICalc (the program) is supplied as is. Ian Prest (the author) disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, including, and without limitation to, the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the use of the program. ICalc is a "freeware program."

Contacting the Author --------------------- Feel free to contact me at ianprest@connect.reach.net. I cannot provide much support for this FREE program, but I will try to help with any problems you are having. Visit my home page at: http://www.wp.com/ianprest I will _not_ spend a lot of time fixing bugs and/or adding new features since this is a freeware utility. Most of my free time is already taken up with HTML-Ed (my HTML editor - http://www.wp.com/ianprest/htmled.html) and with school-work. Feel free to make requests, but don't expect anything.
