Paste equations into Calculator.app

Interestingly enough, there's a secret calculator application hidden within Calculator.app. Hidden in the Calculator.app/Contents/MacOS folder is "CalcEngine".

Why not make an alias instead? That way you don't clutter up your home directory with symlinks.

Also, if you want easy command-line calculation and you have DarwinPorts installed, try looking at the 'calc' port.
