Yet another command line calculator
Authored by: zojas on Feb 02, '05 01:37:49PM

the cool thing is that bc is 'infinite' precision. try this:

bc -l
2^100
1267650600228229401496703205376

yup, that's 2 raised to the 100th power!

the -l flag turns on floating point stuff, to 20 decimal place precision.
