cinnamon - gcalctool - prog style - 10^12 limit

Postby Francky la Hache » Wed Nov 14, 2012 1:46 pm


I often use gcalctool in programming style.
I can quickly have both the binary and decimal representation of my integer results.

I have a 64bit hardware and several mint64 flavor. (but huge fan of cinnamon)

The MATE editions don't give any trouble with the new gcalctool (another name, I don't remember).
The cinnamon editions (in mint 12, 13, 14rc ) give some troubles :
try to enter 10^12, and 10^12 - 1 : the limit is shown.
try to enter any number greater than 10^12, it will the same.

In the first case you will have a scientific representation (and no binary representation),
not in the second case.

In prog-style I (and surely many other users) would rather prefer have always full integer representation and no scientific representation, at least until 2^64.

It would be kind to have a better output with cinnamon.
Thanks if you can fix that.

Mint do not write the gcalctool nor the MATE equivalent, see Help | About in both cases.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
