you might change the run command tool instead of writing something yourself, to make it show this nice result window instead of the way it works now... maybe ad a small history and sin/cos etc too :D

the idea is there is too many different app already. there is already a line calculation tool as a kicker applet. there is also dictionary kicker applet... i think all this should be one.

kde run dialog already has an history, type calc something you'll see this.
i'm not sure if it should be named differently. the basic idea was to have a quick calculator which display the result nicely. this can be renamed easily by anyone.

if you find out how to
do "sin/cos etc" in ruby, you'll be able to do it using calc.

Why don't you 'include Math' and not force people to type Math.sin? It would also be trivial to not require the quotes around the agrument, and just concat all the agruments given together.

There is a definite need for a GUI shell-esque math app that isn't Mathematica or Maxima. I'm currently using irb, but it would be nice to have something could make the input pretty.

Heh, well, never mind on the argument point. I was just confused by your screen shot. quotes aren't necessary.

good idea to 'include Math'
I'll do it in my copy and it will be present for the next version. I'm too lazy to reupload only for this small change

as for the arguments being quoted, its require if you use a * for a multiplication, as the kde run command will shell execute your line and the * will get interpreted and you'll send your directory file list to my script.

Doesn't the run command already do this? You don't even have to type in "calc" for the command. Just type in the equation, and hit enter. Whats the need for the extra steps basically?

the idea is the result window
which a standard calculation in the run windows does not give you.

+, even if its called calc, you can actually do a lot more than simple calculation.
