I’m really enjoying this tool! Nice work. The intuitive nature of the variables is nice.
I have a suggestion. It might be a little more user friendly if the default answer variable was a single characters vs ‘ans’. It would just be easier to type in, especially if you’re using the number pad.
I’m following the Matlab legacy with the “ans” variable. My preference is to stick with “ans” for now. Thanks!
In a previous version of CCalc, typing an operation (+ or -) without a number in front of it caused CCalc to inherit the last result by automatically inserting “ans” in front of the operation. Is this possible with the latest version of CCalc?
Yep – that should still work for you. You might have to type the – twice, first time may default to a negative sign, rather than subtraction.
I don’t want to start a war but I don’t know if changing ans to a is such a good idea. Often I will use ‘a’ as a temporary variable and do simple calculations such as ‘a+b’
I think ‘ans’ should be left alone, it’s not that hard to type ‘ans’ and it prevents accidental overwriting for the variable ‘a’.
