simple calculator that loads fast


I like things simple and fast. Anybody know of a calculator that loads fast? I run Mandrake 9.0 on a 233mhz cpu and 128mb ram. Mandrake distro comes with kcalc and gcalc, but they load slow on my system. I'd like one that works on the linux console but I'd settle for an xwindows version.

Thanks very much, bulliver, I found bc on my Mandrake distro cds, also found xcalc, much better looking graphic than gtkcalc. Xcalc is in X11R6-contrib rpm. Thanks again.

That's what I use, it's awesome. Fires right up, no frills, no crap, just works. xcalc is the best IMHO.

Cool
