  • [A level Physics] This is my attempt at this question that I’m not confident on, is it correct?
    I recommend downloading, it's what I use for physics calculations and it makes these calculations very easy since it automatically converts units.

    also libqalculate comes with a banger cli calculator that preserves actual value too

  • I just discovered Firefox has a built-in calculator | 2021-07-02
    ROFL yes, about:config search 'calculator'... however, I use qalculate - much better than opening a new Firefox tab...
  • Show HN: Kalk, A calculator with math syntax, complex numbers, etc. (Rust, WASM) | 2021-05-30
    I'm a big fan of It has a nice GUI which can be used interchangeably with the CLI version.

    It also has units, many built-in physical constants, currency conversion, matrices and probably tons of other stuff I don't know about.

  • gnome-system-monitor showing more RAM than I actually have
    libqalculate?. It's my go-to for shell calculations and unit conversions. I actually learned about it because KDE uses it for calculations in krunner since...decades by now I assume. But it comes with this nice qalc shell frontend that pretty much accepts any math formula I throw at it. Only problem I have with it is even shown in the paste above...I usually start it with LC_ALL=C qalc to get "." decimal separators, not the german ",", makes copy and paste easier.
  • Calc.exe is now open source; there’s surprising depth in its ancient code (2019) | 2021-03-25
    Check out Qalculate![1] for an application for a program that does what you specify and much more (though obviously not as much as WA).

    > 5. `qalc` from libqalculate:

    Or, you know, any REPL available. | 2021-02-17
    A lot of these can be done in Bash, too!

    1. `mkcdir () { mkdir -- "$1" && cd -- "$1"; }`

    2. `bind '"\e[A":history-search-backward'; bind '"\e[B":history-search-forward'`. Ctrl+R also has the same behavior.

    3. `shopt -s autocd`

    5. `qalc` from libqalculate:

    8. Default behavior for Bash.

    9. Default behavior for Bash.
