# Port Request: Graphcalc

#### DXR_13KE

##### Still Fresh
As indicated I am posting a port request in the General Section.

GraphCalc could be a nice and useful bit of software for the Pandora.

GraphCalc is an open source and GPLed computer program that runs in Microsoft Windows and Linux that provides the functionality of a graphing calculator.
GraphCalc includes many of the standard features of graphing calculators, but also includes some higher-end features:
High resolution
Graphing calculator screens have a resolution typically less than 120×90 pixels, whereas computer monitors typically display 800x600 pixels or more.
Speed
Modern computers are considerably faster than handheld graphing calculators
Three-dimensional graphing
While high-end graphing calculators can graph in 3-D, GraphCalc benefits from modern computers' memory, speed, and graphics acceleration (OpenGL)
GraphCalc was originally developed by Brendan Fields and Mike Arrison, computer science students at Bucknell University, before graduating in 2000. Mike continued the development briefly from 20012003, but has since abandoned the project.

When in the course of computing events it becomes apparent that not all calculators are created equal, one must turn no further than to GraphCalc. When the requirements of your computations exceed the capabilities of your four-function figurer, turn to GraphCalc. When you need to see what multiple compound exponential sinusoidal waves look like, turn to GraphCalc. Haven't we all at some point wanted to see what "sin(x)^2-3*ln(tan(x*pi))" looked like, and the Windows calculator just wasn't up to the task?

GraphCalc can be your first, last, and only line of offense against the mathematics that threaten to push you over the brink of insanity. It slices, dices, shreds and purees functions that leave other calculators wondering what hit them.

GraphCalc is an all-in-one solution to everything from everyday arithmetic to statistical analysis, from betas to Booleans, from cubes to calculus, from decimals to derivatives. GraphCalc combines all the features of a professional mathematics package with the simplicity of an easy to learn windows interface. It provides user-friendly help and tutorials to guide you through the easy and fun process of mastering GraphCalc.

GraphCalc is ready to use out of the box. Don't bother reading the documentation. Just start the program and you'll see how easy it is to use.
