Description Stephen Rasku 2002-12-17 06:48:35 UTC
Description of problem:

Most scientific calculators have an engineering notation.  You should be able to
configure kcalc to use engineering notation.  In engineering notation, the
exponent is always a multiple of 3.  For example, the scientific notation number
3e+08 would be displayed as 300e+06.  This makes it easy to determine how many
million, billion, trillion, etc. my calculation worked out to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kcalc-3.0.3-0.7

How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Multiply 3000*9000
    
Actual results:

It displays 2.7e+07.

Expected results:

If engineering notation was configured, it would display 270.e+e07

Comment 1 Stephen Rasku 2002-12-17 06:49:53 UTC
That should be 270.e+06.

Comment 2 Than Ngo 2004-10-26 16:50:07 UTC
it's a new feature request in KDE. Could you please report it to kde
bugzilla directly. Thanks
