Replacing Calculator.app/CalcEngine with 'bc'
Authored by: fracai on Oct 25, '04 10:11:07AM

oh how I wish I had left my computer up when I went to work this morning.

make a script that receives stdin and writes it to a file
heck, just make a named pipe

then run tail -f on the output file or pipe
run some basic/advanced calculations and you've got the format

when I get home I'll set this up and see what I get.
