RubyCalc is a quick, light, and free calculator that does LONG Numbers for Mac X

RubyCalc 1.0.4
RubyCalc : an application, a service and a widget
 

Google can be used as a calculator really handier than the Calculator application of MacOS X.
 But what if you are not connected to the Internet ? Did you already need a quick, light, and free calculator able to:
 
  • use numbers arbitrarily long (more than 10 figures...) ?
  • type long expressions with parenthesis but without mistake ?
  • easily mix numbers in different basis (binary, decimal, hexadecimal...) ?
RubyCalc may be what you are looking for. It supplies an application with its service, and a widget.

  Caution : Rubycalc is using the Ruby language to perform the computations. The Ruby language have some specificities that you should be aware of, otherwise you may not understand the results.
Examples:
  • Integer divisions : 5/2 = 2 (remaining 1 = 5%2); but 5/2.0 = 2.5
  • Power : 5^2 = 7 (binary exclusive OR operation) but 5**2 = 25 (power)
Please refere to a Ruby documentation if you have any doubt.
