you can also do simple sequential operations like this (each one on it's own line):

123
+34
+4
+343
100
-100


in other words if you just do OPERATION VALUE [ENTER]
it uses the last value as the left hand side.

unfortunately not, BUT there are other plugins+aliases that use online services to do this, and i hope someone can make an improved calc that does.

oiur own master javascript plugin writer czechboy has been working on a fscript/javascript based plugin that behaves much like fcalc BUT supports hex/bin conversions and user-customizable functions, which i think he will be unveiling soon..

Hi all.
Sorry for my bad English - i'm from russia.

FCalc is great.  :up: But i have some troubles. Spent hour trying to find any help, manual, instructions how to use this plugin, but find nothing. Is any help available? In the "readme.txt" file only this text:
"INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE By default this plugin is set to trigger when you start your search with:  fc
You can type any keywords after the ff to filter and score your results,
 e.g.: fc 2+2"
and
"NOTES: None yet."
I can't find how to define variable, can't see list of supported functions like sin() and avg()...  :(
Help file - that would be a good idea for this good plugin. May be it already exists?
Thanks for any advice.

check this, the basis of the plugin: http://muparser.sour...forge.net/index.html

For defining a variable just type
fc a=3
From then on when you type a, you get the value 3

Also I found some predefined constants like
fc _pi
fc _e

Good luck.

I currently use the number pad keys to select results during normal FARR use... but this disables use of number pad keys to enter calculations in fcalc. Is there a way around this? Or must I uncheck "Numpad keys launch results..."

Thanks

ayryq: do you have an old version of fcalc or farr? I have some idea about that having been fixed in a recent version..

The most recent version of FARR (from the website) is 2.49.01. I have version 2.52.02. (from DC Updater)
I have version 1.10.01 of FCalc, which is the current version available for download.

I just double checked (in case an update recently fixed this) and am still experiencing the NumPad problem.

I'll look into it.
note that czb's pack has a more sophisticated calculator for farr: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=17153.0

@IainB

czb's JSCalc is actually much more advanced than FCalc and is recommended (even by Mouser himself) over FCalc. I'm not saying FCalc isn't good but JSCalc surely is better.

JSCalc is part of czb's CZB pack, so download that to get JSCalc, among other plugins.

@d4ni: Thanks. I installed CZB pack a while back, had some probs and deinstalled it.
FCalc is just nice and simple, and it works OK.

After long absence, I just installed FARR on a new computer.  What do I need to do to get FCalc working again, please?

To install, use the dcupdater, OR grab from here and unpack into your FARR Plugins directory: http://www.donationc...dons/FCalc/FCalc.zip

Note that for people who want to be able to write custom functions, CZB's jscalc is the way to go.

mouser, I tried DcUpdater, but it gave a 403.  Thanks for the link above - installed and working now   :)

I want to use '='  to open fcalc so I entered this to "Regular Expression (custom override)":
^=(.*)$|^=$

It opens fcalc just fine, but when I hit enter fcalc disappears and the command line gets replaced with 'fc'.  So I tried using this regex instead:

^=(.*)$|^=$|^fc (.*)$|^fc$
... which keeps fcalc opened, but it stops functioning (or at least stops reacting to me entering more expressions).

Thanks for any suggests-

I'm getting an error message from this plugin when I use it.  I'll type "fc 2+2", then hit Enter, and receive the following error :

0033.jpg

(In case the attachment didn't get put in correctly, the error message reads "Cannot create file "C:\Program Files(x86)\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\FCalc\advoptions.cfg")

I'm running on an 64-bit Enterprise machine and have to enter my admin user and pwd to change the Program Files directories.  Can that file be moved to the Temp or AppData directory?  I check the options for the plug-in and didn't see any way to change the location.

Thanks!
Paul

Paul, I'm afraid this may be a real oversite in my code which normally is smart about where configuration files go.. it seems the plugin specific advoptions files are trying to write into the Program Files\Plugins directory.. when they shouldn't..

Let me try to put together a fix.

One temporary workaround for you would be to move the entire Find And Run Robot directory out of you Program Files\ directory and into your documents area, and edit the configdir.ini to uncomment the Portable=True line, thereby running FARR in portable mode which shouldn't suffer from this problem.



ottenm -- sorry i missed your original question. are you still searching for a solution?

To fix some similar issue, I gave my username Full Control permissions to C:\Program Files (x86)\Find and Run Robot (allowing to trickle down to subfolders). I used to have to do that a lot with various programs in Vista, not so much in Windows 7--I've used both Home and Premium (probably because I figured out that most programs that need to write to Program Files are packaged in a ZIP file, so those I now put in C:\Tools instead.) And btw I also use the 64 bit version of the OS.
If bad things happen to other people, it's karma. If bad things happen to me, it's kismat!

fcalc updated to v 1.12:
  • v1.12.01 , Mar 25th, 2015 - Fixed some issues with using last result in more complex expresions with spaces or starting with +*-/^
  • Improved "fc help" instructions

LATEST HELP:

 fc expression -- calculate an expression
 fc ` -- clear history
 fc VARNAME=VAL -- assign a var
 fc clear [VARNAME] -- clear variables
 fc list -- list defined variables
 use special var 'lv' to refer to last value or just start expression with +-*/^

Hi Mouser,

When updating via DCupdater it seems to be successful except that the previous version of the dll is not replaced; the meta files are, so DCUpdater seems to think has updated but FARR clearly shows the previous version.  I've only just noticed, but it has happened on two of the PCs I've just checked, one Windows 8.1 x64 and one Server 2012 R2.

I also noticed I needed to close FARR to update the .dll which the updater did not seem to do.

Thanks for the report Falcon -- i need to look into this.. it's possible i never actually updated the version number of fcalc.
