## Shell Calculator |

**Shell Calculator** is a powerful scientific calculator.
It can evaluate wide range of mathematical expressions, supports variable assignment loading external javascript resources
and custom calculators.

For instance try entering the following:

*a=3*

*c=sqrt(25+a*a)*

(press Enter or click Compute button after each expression)

- How much would $1000 would turn into after 30 years if APY is 10%? Solve.
- What is the sum of all natural numbers less or equal to 100. Solve.
- What is the chance of getting heads 10 times in a row in a cointoss? Solve.

**History**: use arrow up and arrow down to navigate command history.

**Syntax**: put function arguments in parentheses:
sin(x) - correct,
sin x - incorrect;
do not omit multiplication:
x*sin(x) - correct,
x sin(x) - incorrect;
use *e* for numbers in scientific notation:
*2e3* = 2000;
*log* - natural logarithm,
to express decimal logarithm use *log(x)/log(10)*.

**Constants**:
*e* (Base of the natural logarithm: 2.71828...),
*pi* (π: 3.14159...),
*Infinity* (Positive infinity),
*-Infinity* (Negative infinity).

**Arithmetic operators**:
*+* (Addition),
*-* (Subtraction),
*** (Multiplication),
*/* (Division),
*%* (Modulus).

**Comparison operator**:
*==* (equal),
*!=* (not equal),
*<* (less than),
*>* (greater than),
*<=* (less than or equal),
*>=* (greater than or equal),
*===* (equal in both value and type),
*!==* (not equal in either value or type).

**Logical operator**:
*&&* (and),
*||* (or),
*!* (not).

**Bitwise operators**:
*&* (and),
*|* (or),
*~* (not),
*^* (xor),
*<<* (left shift),
*>>* (Sign-propagating right shift),
*>>>* (Zero-fill right shift).

**Assignment operators**:
*=*, *+=*, *-=*, **=*, */=*, *%=*,
*<<=*, *>>=*, *>>>=*, *&=*, *^=*, *|=*.

**Ternary conditional operator**: <condition> *?* <value if true> *:* <value if false>

**Functions**:
*sqrt* (Square root),
*exp* (Exponent),
*pow* (Power),
*log* (Natural logarithm),
*erf* (Error function),
*abs* (Absolute value),
*sign* (Sign function).

**Trigonometric functions**:
*sin* (Sine),
*cos* (Cosine),
*sec* (Secant),
*csc* (Cosecant),
*tan* (Tangent),
*cot* (Cotangent),
*asin* (Arcsine),
*acos* (Arccosine),
*asec* (Arcsecant),
*acsc* (Arccosecant),
*atan* (Arctangent),
*acot* (Arccotangent);
*rad* (Converts from degrees to radians),
*deg* (Converts from radians to degrees).

**Hyperbolic functions**:
*sinh*
*cosh*
*sech*
*csch*
*tanh*
*coth*
*asinh*
*acosh*
*asech*
*acsch*
*atanh*
*acoth*.

**Rounding functions**:
*floor* (returns largest integer smaller or equal to the number),
*ceil* (returns smallest integer greater or equal to the number),
*round* (returns nearest integer).

**Random functions**:
*random* (returns float between in [0, 1) interval),
*rand(min, max)* (returns integer in [min, max) interval).

**Statistical functions** (operate on arrays):
*max* (maximum element),
*min* (minimum element),
*sum* (sum of elements),
*mean* (arithmetic mean),
*geometric_mean* (geometric mean),
*harmonic_mean* (harmonic mean),
*median*,
*range* (returns range = max - min),
*variance*,
*sample_variance*,
*std* (standard deviation),
*sample_std* (sample standard deviation),
*standard_error*,
*cv* (coefficient of variation),
*skewness*,
*sample_skewness*.

**Integraton with external resources**:
*load(URL)* - if resource is a javascript it will be loaded and executed, if resource is an image it will be inserted in the console.

**Advanced usage**: valid javascript expressions are supported. For instance, you can ask for the user input by calling *prompt* function as demonstrated in
circumference calculator.

If you need to compute an expression frequently you can define it as a function and then use direct link to access a custom version of this calculator.

For example to can define hypotenuse of a triangle as follows:
*hyp = function(a, b) { return sqrt(a*a+b*b)}*

Change the title of the calculator:

*title('Hypotenuse calculator')*

and definte custom help string:

*help('<b>Hypotenuse Calculator</b> is a custom shell calculator that allows to compute hypotenuse of a right triangle using function <b>hyp(a, b)</b>. Example: <i>hyp(3, 4)</i>') *

Final result is a hypotenuse calculator.
