I think the following should yield the same result, and I believe the latter is supposed to be correct.
6^2/2*3+4=> 581 vote
2(3) is not syntax to multiply – it is syntax to call the function “2” with the argument “3”. If you want to multiply, write 2*(3)
Currently it uses comma, and it's really annoying:
fpd = fps * 86400 => 1,296,000
Applications should use "Number separators" setting from System Preferences -> Language & Region.
Thank you for great app! It saves tons of time.3 votes
The app defaults to “invariant” culture (which mimics US standards). The reference manual shows you how to switch cultures. The culture is not set automatically so that you can share the files with people outside your country.
I think a Calca-like Python editor would be great. It would work just like Calca but with the flexibility and extensibility of a full fledged programming language like Python.
It would be great to use loops, list comprehensions and libraries available when working in Python but with the Calca interface.
I'd pay good money for something like it.3 votes
I’m declining only because this won’t happen with Calca itself, but it’s a great idea and I am considering doing it.
For example, currently "how many weekdays in september = # Google doesn't know". Yet, Wolfram|Alpha appears to return a result in a parsable form.80 votes
Wolfram looks too expensive to integrate.
Also, **italics produces italics and shows the **. My understanding is that *italics* should produce italics (w/o the asterisks showing) and **bold** should produce bold (w/o the asterisks showing).8 votes
Calca always shows every character. Editorial is an example of another app like this. If you want a perfect preview, then use Marked or other similar app – it’s great for generating HTML too.
In some of my texts, I have a lot of definitions at the top. It would be nice if I could group them and minimize them away so that they don't clutter the top when I'm looking at the file.7 votes
I will be adding an “import” feature so that all those definitions can be hidden in another file.
It would be cool to be able to do something like:
cost sofa = 500kr
cost table = 200kr
cost paint = 50kr
total cost = sum(cost*)
total cost => 750kr
So instead of doing `total cost = sofa + table + pain`, which you need to update once you purchase some more stuff, you can use wildcards.10 votes
You can now do summing lists:
Total Cost +=
Sofa = 500kr
This is a good idea, but will take major changes to implement.
