Calculator Question . . .

Well, what do you think?
If you want to help implement the calculator into M30W, it is at this link: http://www.mediafire.com/?mfukjmtjn1y

Re: Calculator Question . . .

why would it need it? you should be able to just type in a math problem and have M30W run it, just like Python. Or is that what you meant?

I mean, that it would be it's own seperate program, outside of the M3OW(emerald) program. I already made one but I just need to make it a bit (a lot) better. Anyways, do we work on other projects besides M3OW gersh?

No. M30W is a programming language, not a calculator. Most people already have a calculator on their computer anyways.

Re: Calculator Question . . .

A good reason to have a calculator.
You have it in there for 2 reasons, 1. A conviences 2. we could let it have acess to the variables already in the program so the user can work out what happens when you do certin things with the variable (Only integers ofcourse you cant do it with booleans)

Re: Calculator Question . . .

i'm not sure how hard it would be to allow you to use variables as the math stuff. IDEA!!!!! I could use some of my special defs that can tell if something is a number. I will upload some stuff soon for you guys to implement. (I am horrible with editing the emerald code. I can really only work with other stuff.) What do you think I should do?

Re: Calculator Question . . .

I voted no. :P We could make it so you could use mathematics in M30W. ^.^

But the calculator would be a help so you dont have to write a script!

Re: Calculator Question . . .

or we could integrate teh calc into the gui so that you  can have a little floating calculator widget, like, not a separate program, but a little child window.

Re: Calculator Question . . .

interesting idea cds56. i dont know a thing about gui so someone else would have to do it. then again, it might not have to be gui.

Re: Calculator Question . . .

I believe filo is working on the C# version of m30w for GUI. so, i think he'd be the one to ask.

Filo's Diamond/Emerald+/something else is a completely different from M30W if we were to get him to do the calculator in C# then it'd only be able to run on windows OS's that have the right version of .NET

We could just have the program launch the built in calculator on the OS using a shell (I know very little, but a friend of mine can do it in VB, so we should be able to do it in python.)

Re: Calculator Question . . .

markyparky, that was exactly what I was thinking about. although, with a bit of editing (i mean a lot), we could make my little calculator handle the user-made variables that emerald can use along with regular numbers. it would run alongside emerald like the output window. or be a gui.

go try find a sourcecode for a scientific calculator, preferably if possible in python, program and start learning.

Re: Calculator Question . . .

well, my dad wrote a calculator program a while back, and I have the source code to modify at will.

from what I've seen, it seems pretty friendly, and has a few functions, as well as variables.

Re: Calculator Question . . .

written in C, which means it could effortlessly be ported to c++ and because it's well commented, it could be written in python probably.

I'm not sure how it will work out yet because it was written in 1985, but I've got it almost back on the computer from the paper it was written on.

My dad wrote a C program to teach himself Morse code, iv got the code for it somewhere (On paper) its like 25 pages long.
