New version of LogiCalc is released. This version adds a few useful features. This program will be paid software from here on out. I’m making it only 6 USD. If you purchase this version, you will get any future version for free. Just ask. If you want to try it first, then download the free version 1.0 in the calculator pack post below.

(If you don’t understand this software, read the previous post on the calculator pack and that will tell you all about the first version.)

Here are the new features:

LogiCalc now has the “icap” feature. Just type that in, press enter, and start copying numbers in your browser or wherever. This is for instant clipboard capture. The old “cap” feature would push numbers all onto the same line and not run the calculation until you were ready and pressed enter. With icap, it will capture each number on a different line and add them instantly. This is better if you want results right after copying each number and don’t mind that it’s all on different lines. I prefer it. Remember to type “stop” after, just like you would with the old “cap” feature.

Now every answer has a number tag in front of it. For example, after doing your first calculation, you see a “[1] =” in front of your answer. You may use any of those answer numbers in your following calculations. Like, “[1]/[2]”. That will divide the first answer by the second. You can use any of them at the same time. You may also use “ans” instead. That is simply a shortcut to typing the highest number (or the most recent answer). That way, if you know you simply want to operate on the most recent answer, you don’t have to type in the answer number. It is useful in a situation where you want to divide a number by the last answer. Say, “4/ans” – it divides 4 by last answer. You could do “/4”, but that divides last by four instead of four by last. With other operations, it generally doesn’t matter what order they are in, so you could just type “*4” or “+4” or whatever to operate on the last answer.

Take note: If you are using super large numbers in the millions, you should add a “.0” after them, otherwise you might get an “Invalid command”. This forces the engine to use a larger variable size.

These are some useful calculator programs I wrote.

1. LogiCalc – An adding machine type calculator with a log

This is the front-runner of this pack! For so long I have wanted a calculator on Windows that works just like an adding machine. It’s really annoying that the default Windows calc can only show you basically one line at a time. Many times I’ll be looking at product prices or items in a shopping cart and wish that I had a calc with a log. Other calculators or using Excel are just over the top. I wanted something simple and easy to use.
Enter LogiCalc. . .
LogiCalc allows you to calculate in a log based format. Just enter a math calculation like “2+2+2” or whatever you want and press Enter to see the result printed in the log. It understands order of operations (but NOT variables). You can continue an expression on the next line after getting an answer. For example, type “+1” on the next line and it will add 1 to the previous answer. You can use +, -, *, /, or %.
Lastly, it has a clipboard capture feature. You know how sometimes there are several numbers on a website you want to add together? Like how much would all these products cost in total? Copy pasting each one or manually typing into Windows calculator is super annoying. Never again! Just type “cap” and press enter. Now go and copy each of those numbers and they will automatically get added to the calculation (no pasting or plus-ing). When done, just click the title bar to re-focus the app and press enter; there’s your answer. Remember to type “stop” when you are done adding those numbers, otherwise it will keep capturing any other numbers you copy. One stipulation is that it will not add a direct list of numbers copied all at once; you copy each number one at a time. (It doesn’t matter to me because generally on a website, they are separated by BS that would have to get filtered out (or even on different pages)).

2. CalcuCent – A quick, but serious, percentage calculator

This is for calculating percentages. Doing percentage calculations can be annoying and cumbersome with a standard calculator. Not anymore with CalcuCent. It’s much more than your average percentage calculator. It allows you to calculate for practically ANY type of situation using percentages. Its use is self-explanatory.

3. AspectRatio

I’m just throwing this one in here, but there’s nothing special about it. Calculate the aspect ratio of any resolution OR input an aspect ratio and it will give you a resolution (given one of the dimensions).
