rCalc is a scientific calculator for the GNOME desktop environment. It aims to occupy the middle ground between simple `point-and-click' calculators and full featured mathematical packages, and hopefully take some of the best of both worlds.

The goal of the project has been to create a system that combines convenience and simplicity with power and versatility: to create a program which is which has an intuitive user interface and a powerful core. Adding up should be as simple as on a handheld calculator, yet the more complex features should be there as required.


rCalc is released under the terms and conditions of the GNU General Public License.


To run rCalc, it is necessary have the GNOME libraries installed on your system. Most recent Linux distributions come with the necessary libraries installed, although it is generally a good idea to upgrade to the latest versions.
