Integer numbers can be represented in iCALCULA not only in decimal basis but also in hexadecimal, octal and binary.

In order to operate with integers in non decimal basis you must activate Bases Calculator Mode. You activate it with |Activate Bases Calculator| function...

Real numbers are stored in the memory stack using only Part1 of the registers. Part2 remains null.

Following operators perform computations on real numbers:

|+| : Computes (y + x)-registers and stores result in x-register

|-| : Computes (y - x)-registers and stores resul...

THE STACK

The work area for calculations in iCALCULA is the STACK. The stack consists of four storage locations, called registers, which are "stacked" on top of each other. These registers — labeled x, y, z, and t — store and manipulate four current numerical quantities...
