If I may extend shiftLynx's list with a small amount of words...

  • PI
  • e
  • support for complex numbers
  • Arctan, tan, arctanh and tanh
  • Arccos, cos, arccosh and cosh
  • Arcsin, sin, arcsinh and sinh
  • x-th Root (or just y^(1/x))
  • 10^x
  • e^x
  • y^x

A lot of trigonometric functions can be written as function of some powers of e.

Anyway, only do this if you really want to Wink It's a lot of work. I like it now already, you are already very far ^_^

Funny, Algebra never bothered to mention all that on "i",. oh well..  .. Thats a higher math isn't it tho?


Imgainary Numbers? Oooh there so cool, yet I hated them. I learned them last year. Did you take Algebra 2? I learned them in there.

It would be nice to be able to use the numeric keypad to enter numbers & operations to the calculator (like mscalc allows). It makes things go much faster.

Are you going to get rid of that ugly title bar at the top of the window to make it look more calculator-like?  Cheesy

Not bad, but one really simple, REALLY effective suggestion -
use txt files for the readmes. noone wants to wait 6-10 secs for word to load up just so they can read something that could just have easily be written as a txt file and opened up and read in 0.2 secs.

Also, I would recommend actually creating a function to change skins, rather than having to copy across the files yourself. Perhaps you could create a skins data file with the names and locations of all the skin files, so that other people could add their own in, and the program would read the file and be able to use the skin.

All programmers who knwo their sh1t use txt. It is the all knowing, all encompassing, all platform, universal document type. Nothing beats it.
