# calc – Simple arithmetic in LaTeX commands

Adds infix expressions to perform arithmetic on the arguments of the
LaTeX commands `\setcounter`, `\addtocounter`,
`\setlength`, and `\addtolength`. Since many
packages start their arithmetic by storing an argument in a
register, the package has wide applicability.

This package is part of the latex-tools bundle in the LaTeX required distribution.
