[ANN] rpncalc-1.1 RPN Calculator For Python

Discussion in 'Python' started by Raymond L. Buvel, Dec 21, 2004.

  1. The rpncalc package adds an interactive Reverse Polish Notation (RPN)
    interpreter to Python. This interpreter allows the use of Python as
    an RPN calculator. You can easily switch between the RPN interpreter
    and the standard Python interpreter.

    Changes in 1.1

    * Stack checking gives an appropriate error message instead of aborting
    to the Python interpreter.

    * Exceptions are handled within the RPN interpreter instead of aborting
    to the Python interpreter. This makes recovery much simpler since there
    are very few situations that actually require the Python interpreter for
    recovery.

    * Vocabularies are now ordered by priority. A complete list of all the
    currently defined vocabularies is available from within the interpreter.

    * User can select degrees or radians mode for trig functions.

    * Added extended precision floating point using the gmpy module.

    * Added a const module that provides some physical constants in SI (MKS)
    units.

    * Converted to a Python package to simplify future expansion.
