Calcuverter
Utilities
Description:

Calcuverter is a calculator and unit converter in one. Furthermore, you can enter queries in plain English. Normal desktop calculators always seemed counter-intuitive to me. Why emulate the limited interface (ie a numeric pad) of a pocket calculator, when you’ve got the power of a desktop computer and keyboard at your finger tips. This is a very simple interface, with a lot of hidden power. It uses the google calculator as its engine, which means that it can do complex calculations and unit conversions. If the calculation is a simple mathematical expression, the linux version will use the bc program, rather than going online.

Yes, krunner has very rudimentary support for calculations and conversions. However, it can't calculate:

- 1 hectare plus 2 acres in square inches
- a marathon in miles
- pi*10^2

for example. Calcuverter can.

Furthermore, the interface is far more intuitive than usual unit converters, which require you to navigate round long lists of units to do simple conversions. Typing it out is much quicker and intuitive.

Ehrm, have you ever tried the calculator function or the converter function of KRunner (Alt+F2)? e.g. if you input there "=5+5" it will output "10" or if you input "5m in cm" it will output "500 centimeter" (or "5c in F" -> "41 Fahrenheit")
