Is it possible to use memory related operations in the calculator?

Asked by Padmanabhan

The calculator available in Ubuntu environment is really nice. I would like to use 'memory store', 'memory add', 'memory clear' facilities. Do they exist? If yes, how to use the same? Or else can they be added?

One can use the calculator off-line. Further it has a scientific version.
The on-line calculator suggested is not a scientific version.

It has a scientific mode button across the top.... It's just a stop gap til you can find a alternative to the installed app.

Just use the clipboard! You can mark then copy <ctrl>c and paste <ctrl>v a value in and out of the calculator. It's an incredibly powerful calculator, but is simple to use in it's most basic mode.

I suspect that the global menu prevents many people from finding the advanced (scientific), financial and programming modes it has.

You can open a scratch pad document and cut and paste values in there as well, so you can have as many memory locations as you could possibly want. I don't know if this is the reason behind the way the calculator was developed with no memory even though it's very advanced in other ways, but I will say that it's a lot of fun to use this way.

Thanks you Chris.
It is a nice way of overcoming the apparent problem.
