I can usually type faster in the terminal than doing mouse click on a gui calculator, so I created this scipt to be able to do it quickly from the terminal. There are alot of command line calculators out there so use the one you are comfortable with but I like using bc because of the syntax. For example, you can type:
or something more complex:
calc "8^2*(10/2+(13.2032565*2030)/.349548)" 100
100 is optional, it will specify how many decimals you want to carry it out to (the default is 4).
