ExCalc is the first calculator available for any computer which provides
calculations which can be accurate to over 50 digits! As well all decimals
are represented exactly so you never loose pennies during a calculation. All
this power is made more accessible through the choice of a GUI interface or
command line entry of complete equations -- not just numbers. Any entered
equation can be recalled just by clicking on a history window. You also have
access to sixteen memory locations which can store any number.
New features are:
o On-line help facility via menu or Help key
o MUCH faster window creation and calculator key creation
