wmcalc - dockable calculator application


wmcalc [-g geometry] [-d display] [-v] [-f configfile] [-h]


This manual page documents briefly the wmcalc command. This manual page was written for
the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual

wmcalc is a program designed to act as a simple calculator offering basic operations like
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square and squareroot. It is different
from other calculator programs, however in that it is designed to take up very little
desktop space. As such, it can be left running on the desktop at all times. It is
intended to placed in the WindowMaker dock, or in Wharf under Afterstep, though it should
run as well under any window manager.

*IMPORTANT*: this calculator, due to its simple target, does not respect the proper
mathematical operations order, and they are executed in the order they are inserted.

Buttons are defined as:
| x00 | x = 1 for Left Mouse Button
| 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9| x = 2 for Middle Mouse Button
|--------------------| x = 3 for Right Mouse Button
|x01 x02 x03 x04 x05 |
|x06 x07 x08 x09 x10 | Note: the numbers 0..9 are the
|x11 x12 x13 x14 x15 | indicators for memory cells
|x16 x17 x18 x19 x20 | 0..9 respectively

Button Functions:

100 Reinitialize the calculator. (100 = Left Mouse Button on Display)

200 Clear all the memory registers (0..10)

300 Clear the current number being entered only

x11 Start a program defined by CalcStart variable in config file

1yy Perform function shown on button

2yy Recall number from memory location [0-9] to display for calculation if yy = 2,3,4,
7,8,9, 12, 13, 14, 17 otherwise, can run a user-defined function (not implemented)

3yy Store Displayed number in memory location [0-9] if yy = 2,3,4, 7,8,9, 12,13,14, 17
otherwise, can run a user-defined function (not implemented)

1xx Hopefully the other functions are obvious from their button graphics.
