Yet another command line calculator
Authored by: boredzo on Feb 02, '05 11:45:52AM

a better way to do that fib function in version 2.3 or later of Python, instead of print, is the yield statement

yield b

(note that there is no comma at the end like there is at the end of the print statement in the print version.)

for my calculations, though, I use calc, by Landon Curt Noll. its syntax resembles C in many ways (the only major difference being the use of an xor() function instead of the ^ operator, which is reverted to exponentiation). its big advantage is that it is arbitrary precision, so it is always accurate - no roundoff error, and every number is supported. try 2 to the power of 128 in some other calculator sometime. ☺
