scalc is a very simple stack-based calculator that aims to be small.
scalc presents the user with an interactive prompt. Operations are written in Reverse Polish Notation and values are stored in a stack. Supported operations include basic arithmetics, logarithms, trignometry, etc. scalc also supports commands that modify the behavior of the stack and scalc itself.
$ ./scalc > 1 2 + 3.000000000 > 4 4.000000000 > + 7.000000000 > 2 / 18 + 21.500000000 > ln 3.068052935 > :quit
