Scientific CalculatorI have been working on a Flash version of a Scientific Calculator "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20090307 16:10:15
Re: Scientific Calculator1. The calculator is unable to compute 171!, which means the calculator has an upper limit of 307 or 308 digits. The factorial function seems to work perfectly 4. may also be added, if possible. Further, conversion frm Polar to rectangular coordinates and vice versa isn't available. 5. Binary, Octal, and Hexadecimal systems are missing. These aren't an absolute necessity though. Similarly, Logic operations 'And', 'Or', 'Not', 'Nor' etc. are not available. Operations on Complex numbers too cannot be performed. The functions which are presently not available may be added, if feasible. The bottom line is, it is a Great effort, and has yielded a wonderful result. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #3 20090309 12:13:25
Re: Scientific CalculatorThanks ganesh! I will try to tackle some of those features in the next release. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20090309 12:43:20
Re: Scientific CalculatorAs an ordinary calculator, it’s good enough. But for it to be a SCIENTIFIC calculator, then I think some of the things mentioned by Ganesh should be included. #5 20090406 07:27:20
Re: Scientific CalculatorCan you please explain how and where a "flash" calculator is loaded, and indeed where a Javascript version is loaded? If I'm told that, I may be able to try yours out. #6 20090406 07:34:38
Re: Scientific CalculatorThe Scientific Calculator is in "flash" "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20090517 05:04:23
Re: Scientific CalculatorI got it to say Last edited by quittyqat (20090517 05:11:14) I'll be here at least once every month. XP #8 20090517 09:35:32
Re: Scientific CalculatorLook at the "Interpreted Formula" to see what it is doing. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
