What features are you planning to implement in the future?  Well, probably I'll fix bugs...

Usage
Installation
How do you install and run the Application for the first time?  Well, you just extract it to a folder and run the exe file.

Using the Application
A brief description of how a user will use the Application. What tips does a user need to get going?  Just extract the files and run the exe.  The little Calculor window will appear and you simply enter your math.

Uninstallation
How does a user uninstall the Application? Just exit the application and delete all the files.

Known Issues
Are there any issues that users should know about?  If the formula you enter is too elaborate you may get some strange answers.  Hopefully I'll work these out over time.  Right now the character-to-unicode-character feature doesn't work for most unicode characters...  (This has to do with the way the scilexer.dll was compiled, and the fellow who helped me with this has flown the coop, so I don't know if I'll ever fix this or not; but I'd like to.)

highend01:
Nice idea.

One issue though...

Windows Server 2012 R2 U1 x64 de-DE
When Calculor is started it "greets" you with a message box:
Sorry, Bub, the colour file list does not exist

Apart from that, a feature request:
The input box should be capable of displaying unicode characters.
E.g. when you use $n and paste a chinese character into the box you'll see only a "..."
Not very informative what you've actually inserted :)

dr_andus:
Is there a keyboard shortcut to call it up (like FARR)?

December 1 2016? Are you from the future?
:D

BGM:
colour file list?  uh, hold on, let me see.
unicode in the calc window - doh!  you are right. In fact, neither side is handling that... 
a global hotkey - yes, I've been wanting that too; I'll add it sometime when I can.

And yes I am from the future, so I will let you know when these were fixed.
