Robert Fuster submitted an update to the
calculator
package.
Version number: 2.0
License type: lppl
Summary description: Use LaTeX as a scientific calculator
Announcement text:

- Inverse trigonometric and inverse hyperbolic functions are added (this completes the typical elementary functions) - Also vector (cross) product and angle between vectors can be evaluated - New length operations - ... and some other minor additions and changes

## calculator – Use LaTeX as a scientific calculator

The calculator and calculus packages define several instructions which allow us to realise algebraic operations and to evaluate elementary functions and derivatives in our documents.

The package’s main goal is to define the arithmetic and functional calculations need in the author’s package xpicture, but the numeric abilities of “calculator” and “calculus” may be useful in other contexts.
