### PRICA - the PRInting CAlculator

Posted:

**Wed May 09, 2018 10:30 am**I always wondered "What to do with the large display?". So I had the idea of using it like a printer calculator.

Right now it's capable of simple arithmetics (+ - * /), but no exponents - plus former results can be recalled via up and down keys (depth of 9 results plus enter line). It's expandable for further functions.

Great efforts were in parsing the entered number. Ah, yes, and in debugging lots of side effects.

Due to excessive stack operations of the Bill's display routines I had to do many workarounds.

Maybe it's not the brightest piece of code - but here it is, ready to unleash into the community.

I hope my comments will help to understand it.

To run this, you will need Bills font generator and display routines

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=446&start=10#p5524

and the RCLA and STOA programs

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1869&p=8019#p8026

Oh ... and just with battery screen refresh time is sloooooooow ...

Plugging calculator in is far quicker.

Here we go
