Subject: ITP: szg -- Fast command line calculator
Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2012 01:20:33 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Dear Debian Developers,

I intend to create a new package with the following details:

 Package name    : szg
 Version         : 1.0-1
 Upstream Author : SZABÓ Gergely <szg@subogero.com>
 URL             : http://github.com/subogero/szg
 License         : WTFPL
 Section         : math

szg already has a few ecstatic users. I have a deb package repo for it,
but I think it deserves real Debianization.
I also went through the command line calculators in the math section,
and szg still has has some unique features.

Instead of arbitrary precisions it concentrates on ease of use.
It takes the desktop calculator workflow (first operand can be omitted) one
step further, so every missing operand is substituted with the last result.

Example: reciprocals
On most calculators there is a special key or function for it.
If not, it becomes extremely cumbersome.
In szg, you just type "1/" and Return.

There are actually 3 precision modes: unsigned int, int and float.
Decimal, octal, hex and binary formats are also supported.

Regards,
 SZABÓ Gergely
