Would you believe I have only just discovered the Emacs calculator?

I've also discovered Emacs's flex-time tracking function...

If you keep looking there's a command that automatically takes the dog for a walk, and another that removes lint out of T-shirts. ;o)

???

M-x calc
...
[simple attempts at addition]
...
Oh bugger - it's RPN isn't it? And that's meant to be a *help* page...? What on earth does "SHIFT + Floor, Round" mean?!?!

C-h a flex
...
Nope, nothing pops up. What's the flex-time thingy then?

Which Emacs are you using? In mine (21.3.1) M-x calc produces a quite usable calculator ("2" "+" "2" enter DTRT).

And the flexitime-trkacing stuff is activated as M-x timeclock-in -- it prints a display on the modeline saying how much longer you have to work today.

I'm using XEmacs 21.4 running on Win2kPro. There may well be a mode-switch to get a "normal" calc view but it's not on my urgent list - after all, I've got a link to the Windows calculator on QuickLaunch!

Now then, M-x timec... no match. Ah well, never mind - I'm using a Java time-tracker applet anyway.

Ah, I'm using GNU Emacs rather than XEmacs these days; the supplied packages have a tendency to diverge :|

I still tend to use "expr" in a terminal window if I want to work something out, though. old habits die hard...
