Calc is arbitrary precision arithmetic system that uses a C-like language. It’s useful as a calculator, an algorithm prototype, and as a mathematical research tool. More importantly, calc provides a machine-independent means of computation. Calc comes with a rich set of builtin mathematical and programmatic functions.
Release Notes: This release fixes many typos in comments of the Makefile, adds the new calc resource files infinities.cal, intnum.cal, smallfactors.cal, and strings.cal, and adds a number of ctype-like builtins (isalnum, isalpha, iscntrl, isdigit, isgraph, islower, isprint, ispunct, isspace, isupper, isxdigit, strcasecmp, and strncasecmp).
The Makefile rule, debug, is more verbose and prints more information about the calc compiled constants.
The source code is now mostly picky 2.3 clean using -s -v flags.
