Description: Arbitrary precision calculator
Calc is an arbitrary precision arithmetic system that uses a C-like
language. Calc is useful as a calculator, an algorithm prototyper and as a
mathematical research tool. More importantly, calc provides one with a
machine independent means of computation. Calc comes with a rich set of
builtin mathematical and programmatic functions.
.
Calc is built on top of the library libcalc that represents numeric values
as fractions reduced to their lowest terms. This library can also be used
to add arbitrary precision capabilities to your own programs and is
available in the Debian package `calc-dev'.
.
Previously, this package was named `apcalc' in Debian due to a name
collision. However, the previous `calc' Debian package vanished long ago,
so `apcalc' was renamed back to `calc' to match the upstream name.

Description: Library for arbitrary precision arithmetic
This package contains the library libcalc.a and the necessary header files
which provide routines to handle arbitrary precision arithmetic with
integers, rational numbers, or complex numbers. There are also many numeric
functions such as factorial and gcd, along with some transcendental
functions such as sin and exp.
.
This library is also used by the commandline calculator `calc', which is
provided in the Debian package `calc'.
