The main selling point of the “qcalc” calculator is that it accepts expressions in the C-syntax and outputs integer results in decimal, hexadecimal, and binary formats simultaneously.
The expressions can contain all bit-wise operators (<<, >>, |, &, ^, ~) in the same precedence as C/C++. You can also use mixed decimal, hexadecimal and binary numbers. “qcalc” is also a powerful floating-point scientific calculator and supports all mathematical functions (sin(), cos(), tan(), exp(), ln(), …). Some examples of acceptable expressions are:
((0xBEEF << 16) | 1280) & ~0xFF-- binary operators, mixed hex and decimal numbers
($1011 << 24) | (1280 >> 8) ^ 0xFFF0-- mixed @ref qcalc_bin "binary", dec and hex numbers
(1234 % 55) + 4321//33-- remainder, integer division (note the // integer division operator)
pi/6-- pi-constant, storing a value in the
pow(sin(ans),2) + pow(cos(ans),2)-- scientific floating-point calculations, ans-variable
QCalc supports the 64-bit range and switches to 64-bit arithmetic automatically when an integer result of a computation exceeds the 32-bit range. Here are some examples of the 64-bit output:
> 0xDEADBEEF << 27 = 501427843159293952 | 0x06F5'6DF7'7800'0000 = 0b00000110'11110101'01101101'11110111'01111000'00000000'00000000'00000000 > 0xDEADBEEF << 24 = 62678480394911744 | 0x00DE'ADBE'EF00'0000 = 0b00000000'11011110'10101101'10111110'11101111'00000000'00000000'00000000 > 0xDEADBEEF << 34 ! out of range >
QCalc has been released to the PyPi Python Package Index, so it can be installed with the following command:
pip install qcalc
QCalc is also included in the QTools collection, so it will be available after installing QP-bundle.
More information about QCalc is available in the QTools Manual online.
