Command: gnu bc

  GNU BC is an arbitrary precision calculator language.


  bc [ -lws ] [  file ... ]


  -l   Define the standard math library.
  -w   Give warnings for extensions to POSIX bc.
  -s   Process exactly the POSIX bc language.


  BC is a language that supports arbitrary precision numbers with
  interactive execution of statements. There are some similarities in
  the syntax to the C programming language. A standard math library is
  available by command line option. If requested, the math library is
  defined before processing any files. bc starts by processing code from
  all the files listed on the command line in the order listed. After all
  files have been processed, bc reads from the standard input. All code
  is executed as it is read. (If a file contains a command to halt the
  processor, bc will never read from the standard input.)
