gnome-calculator [-a accuracy] [-D] [-E] [gnome-std-options] DESCRIPTION
The Calculator application is multifunctional and can handle different types of mathematical approaches. Calculator has the following modes: Basic Mode Provides standard calculator functions. You can store numbers in 10 different memory registers, and easily retrieve and replace the numbers in the memory registers. Basic Mode is the default mode. You can use all of the Basic Mode functions in each of the other modes. Financial Mode Provides several complex financial functions. Scientific Mode Provides many additional mathematical functions, including trigonometric and logical functions. You can also store your own functions and constants, when you use Scientific Mode. EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
On startup, Calculator uses the following configuration resources stored in a GConf database. Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/accuracy Values: Accuracy value Description: The number of digits displayed after the numeric point. This value must be in the range 0 to 9. Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/base Values: Numeric Base Description: The initial numeric base. Valid values are "BIN" (binary), "OCT" (octal), "DEC" (deci- mal), and "HEX" (hexadecimal). Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/display Values: Display mode Description: The initial display mode. Valid values are "ENG" (engineering), "FIX" (fixed-point), and SCI" (scientific). Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/mode Values: Mode Description: The initial calculator mode. Valid values are "BASIC", "FINANCIAL", and "SCIENTIFIC". Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/showzeroes Values: true, false (true) Description: Whether to show trailing zeroes after the numeric point in the display value. Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/showregisters Values: true, false (true) Description: Whether to display the memory register window when Calculator starts. Resource: /schemes/apps/gcalctool/trigtype Values: Trig. type Description: The initial trigonometric type. Valid values are "DEG" (degrees), "GRAD" (grads), and "RAD" (radians). Any constants or functions that the user defines are also stored in the GConf database. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -a accuracy Specifies the number of digits displayed after the numeric point. This value must be in the range 0 to 9. -D Enable debug mode. -E Enable debug mode in the multiple-precision arithmetic package. gnome-std-options Standard options available for use with most GNOME applications.
