Hi Michael,

i resend this to the list, because probably you get some cool and nice
suggestions for an console calculator :)

Try python. Just enter 0xfa or something and you get the corresponding
decimal value.

If you want the hex value of a decimal number, use hex($numer) and it

You can calculate with hex values in bc when you set the base. Just do
an ibase=16 and it should work.

Hm, i just tried orpie and i think python is much nicer, especially if
you use ipython.

Hm, i used grml 0.8.3 or something like that, and it worked out of the
box. I can rebuild it, if you really need it.
