dc - desk calculator


dc [ file ]


Dc is an arbitrary precision desk calculator. Ordinarily it operates on decimal integers,
but one may specify an input base, output base, and a number of fractional digits to be
maintained. The overall structure of dc is a stacking (reverse Polish) calculator. If an
argument is given, input is taken from that file until its end, then from the standard
input. The following constructions are recognized:

number The value of the number is pushed on the stack. A number is an unbroken string of
the digits 0-9A-F or 0-9a-f. A hexadecimal number beginning with a lower case
letter must be preceded by a zero to distinguish it from the command associated
with the letter. It may be preceded by an underscore _ to input a negative number.
Numbers may contain decimal points.

+ - / * % ^
Add subtract multiply divide remainder or exponentiate the top two values on the
stack. The two entries are popped off the stack; the result is pushed on the stack
in their place. Any fractional part of an exponent is ignored.

Sx Pop the top of the stack and store into a register named x, where x may be any
character. Under operation S register x is treated as a stack and the value is
pushed on it.

Lx Push the value in register x onto the stack. The register x is not altered. All
registers start with zero value. Under operation L register x is treated as a
stack and its top value is popped onto the main stack.

d Duplicate the top value on the stack.

p Print the top value on the stack. The top value remains unchanged. P interprets
the top of the stack as an text string, removes it, and prints it.

f Print the values on the stack.

Q Exit the program. If executing a string, the recursion level is popped by two.
Under operation Q the top value on the stack is popped and the string execution
level is popped by that value.

x Treat the top element of the stack as a character string and execute it as a string
of dc commands.

X Replace the number on the top of the stack with its scale factor.

[ ... ]
Put the bracketed text string on the top of the stack.

=x Pop and compare the top two elements of the stack. Register x is executed if they
obey the stated relation.

v Replace the top element on the stack by its square root. Any existing fractional
part of the argument is taken into account, but otherwise the scale factor is

! Interpret the rest of the line as a shell command.

c Clear the stack.

i The top value on the stack is popped and used as the number base for further input.

I Push the input base on the top of the stack.

o The top value on the stack is popped and used as the number base for further
output. In bases larger than 10, each `digit' prints as a group of decimal digits.

O Push the output base on the top of the stack.

k Pop the top of the stack, and use that value as a non-negative scale factor: the
appropriate number of places are printed on output, and maintained during
multiplication, division, and exponentiation. The interaction of scale factor,
input base, and output base will be reasonable if all are changed together.

z Push the stack level onto the stack.

Z Replace the number on the top of the stack with its length.

? A line of input is taken from the input source (usually the terminal) and executed.

; : Used by bc for array operations.

The scale factor set by k determines how many digits are kept to the right of the decimal
point. If s is the current scale factor, sa is the scale of the first operand, sb is the
scale of the second, and b is the (integer) second operand, results are truncated to the
following scales.

+,- max(sa,sb)
* min(sa+sb , max(s,sa,sb))
/ s
% so that dividend = divisor*quotient + remainder; remainder has sign of dividend
^ min(sa×|b|, max(s,sa))
v max(s,sa)


Print the first ten values of n!
