calculate : calculates the value of the given expression


Provides a very basic calculator.

The operators +, -, *, /, and ^ (exponent) are implemented.

You can use parentheses to group expressions to overcome precedence rules, for

> calc 2+4*3
2+4*3 = 14
> calc (2+4)*3
(2+4)*3 = 18

You can "roll dice" with expressions like 4d4 or 3d2+3.
(You may only roll up to 100 dice at a time.)

The constants pi, e, and i (imaginary, the square root of -1) can be used.

The functions sin(), cos(), sqrt(), exp(), and log() can be used.
