Description of problem:
I would like to suggest a package to be included in a future Fedora
Core release: 'Calc' by Landon Curt Noll:
It is an arbitrary-precision, C-style programmable calculator, which
has been around for a long time and is thus very robust. It is one of
the first packages I always install after the OS, because it is so
handy to have an expression calculator on the commandline. It is much
more powerful (and less cryptic) than bc, and doesn't default to
integer-only (0dp) numerical display (as bc does!). It has a large
library of included functions.
This is not part of bc, assigning to distribution.
Hm, perhaps addition in Fedora Extras/Fedora.us first might be better.
