Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 79827
kcalc should have engineering notation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:05 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
It displays 2.7e+07.
If engineering notation was configured, it would display 270.e+e07
That should be 270.e+06.
it's a new feature request in KDE. Could you please report it to kde
bugzilla directly. Thanks
