rpCalc project started out as a little program written to try out various Python GUI toolkits. But I ended up using it all the time (it's much quicker to pull it up than to pull an actual HP calculator out of the desk), and I made several improvements.
So I decided to make it available to others who also like RPN calculators.
Here are some key features of "rpCalc":
Uses reverse polish notation, similar to most Hewlett-Packard calculators.
The number, operator or command text on any key can be typed, or the mouse can be used to hit the key.
If desired, the four RPN registers can be shown in the main display.
A separate window can display the four RPN registers, a history of recent calculations, or the contents of the ten memory registers.
Any values from the extra windows can be copied to the calculator display or to the clipboard.
Options can be set to control the display of numbers and the initial window configuration.
Qt (Version 2.3 or 3.x)
Python (Version 2.1 or higher)
PyQt (Version 2.4 or higher)
What's New in This Release:
The program was ported to the Qt 4 library.
This involved a significant rewrite and clean-up of the code.
