This does not work. If I 1 by 200 the right answer is 1/200 = 0.005 But if I follow your 'scientific' notation instructions I get 50! That is 1 / 2 X 102 = 50 What happens is the 1/2 division is done first and then the multiplication. To be blunt, you DO NOT HAVE SCIENTIFIC NOTATION. Because if you did then the sequence '2 X 102' would be handled as one number that equals 200 instead of 2 times 100. Let me suggest you use 2E+2 to make clear it is a number, not a sequence of operations. And while I have your attention let me point out that your documentation on how to use the other buttons on the calculator are written with the assumption that I ALREADY know how they work. I suggest you rewrite them based on how the Windows calculator work so I could figure out what the Ubuntu calculator buttons do.

Feel free to report any software bug as a bug report in the bug tracking system at bugzilla.gnome.org: https://wiki.gnome.org/Community/GettingInTouch/Bugzilla/Guidelines Thanks, andre -- Andre Klapper | ak-47 gmx net http://blogs.gnome.org/aklapper/
