Google can be used as a calculator really handier than the Calculator application of MacOS X. But what if you are not connected to the Internet? Did you already need a quick, light, and free calculator able to : use numbers arbitrarily long (more than 10 figures...) ? type long expressions with parenthesis but without mistake ? easily mix numbers in different basis (binary, decimal, hexadecimal...) ? RubyCalc may be what you are looking for. It supplies an application with its service, and a widget. Caution : Rubycalc is using the Ruby language to perform the computations. The Ruby language have some specificities that you should be aware of, otherwise you may not understand the results. Examples: Integer divisions : 5/2 = 2 (remaining 1 = 5%2); but 5/2.0 = 2.5 Power : 5^2 = 7 (binary exclusive OR operation) but 5**2 = 25 (power) Please refere to a Ruby documentation if you have any doubt.
