Calculator

This is the second release of our WhiteSpace Scientific Calculator. It features programmable functions, variables and a range of standard mathematical functions.

Current build: september, 21th, 2001


The upper TextArea displays the memory of the applet. It is empty at start, but will show the variables and functions you define.

The area below shows the answers. You see that all answers are numbered: you can recall them by typing ans([number]).

Under the output area is the input field. You can type here whatever you want to have calculated. If you press enter in this field, the calculator calculates.

You can use the keypad to enter symbols with the mouse. The symbols will appear in the input field. You need to press OK if you want to calculate the input. On other calculators you can use the = button to do that, but that button is used to store variables here.

Examples

3+2*5
calculates 13. note that the calculator places the ( ) like you want them.
x=2.22**sqrt(2)
This sets the variable x. If it already had a value, it is overwritten. ** is used for exponentiation. The ^ symbol denotes bitwise XOR, just like in java
x==0||x<=10
Comparisions return 1.0 if true, 0.0 if false. You can make complex conditions by using the standard boolean operators: ||, &&, !. Note that the double == is the equality operator, not =.
ans(11)*ans(12)
This multiplies the 11th and 12th answer. Everything you calculate is stored.
fac(x)=if(x<=0,1,x*fac(x-1))
Calculates the faculty function. You define functions just like variables, with the = operator. A definition return 1.0 is succesful.
