this functionality, and much more, is already covered by the octave package

Yes, this is true octave offers many features, however, a developer
needs a fast tool and tinycalc is good for this kind of thing!

Sounds like apcalc which has been in Debian since more than 10 years...

 $ calc '0xff + min(10,20) + 0b0010'
        267

 "Calc is an arbitrary precision arithmetic system that uses a C-like
 language. Calc is useful as a calculator, an algorithm prototyper and
 as a mathematical research tool. More importantly, calc provides one
 with a machine independent means of computation. Calc comes with a
 rich set of builtin mathematical and programmatic functions.
 ..."

Is there any benefit for another command-line calculator?

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of tinycalc back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting tinycalc, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 533369 ITP: tinycalc -- Command line calculator for developers
 owner 533369 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <533369@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
