There’s a Calculator in your Terminal


Terminal Calculator bcMurphy’s love for the Terminal is no secret anymore. He keeps it open all the time. A little tiny Terminal window to launch applications, delete piles of files, check the calendar, and see what apps are consuming tons of power.

As long as you’ve got it open, use it for some basic math. The calculator widget is stylish, yes. But the terminal calculator stays on screen, can easily hold variables, and can even be called in a shell script.

When the calculations involve conversion, Murphy turns to the Google calculator. It knows leagues, fathoms, pecks, pints, joules, grams, miles, Rubles – and much more.

So fire up the screencast and see how it’s done. Then open your own Terminal and do some ciphering.
