Thread: calc (arbitrary precision calculator - CLI)... where can I get it?

    Default calc (arbitrary precision calculator - CLI)... where can I get it?

    I seem to remember using calc in a past openSUSE installation, but I can't find it anywhere now. How can I get it?

    FYI, it's apparently known as apcalc on Debian.

    There are other arbitrary precision calculators available for openSUSE; do you need calc itself?

    Alternatives are 'bc' and 'dc'; both have a manpage. The latter one uses RPN notation.
