Pcalc - A programmers calculator for Alfred

Recommended Posts

Hi @themadsens, welcome to the forum. Workflow looks handy.

 

Doesn't work on a standard macOS install, though, because it doesn't have Lua. Perhaps you could add an explanation of how to install it? Or at least mention that it requires non-standard software to run?

 

Also, how do you change the thousands delimiter? The workflow uses point for both the thousands delimiter and the decimal delimiter. It's a bit confusing.

Hi @deanishe Thanks for your interest.

 

There is a hint in the placeholder on how to install lua (brew install lua53)

 

Sure, good point. The thousands separator should be commas, when the decimal point is a full stop.

I'll change that. In the meantime, it can be changed in 'pcalc.lua' as shown below.

Right, thanks. Didn’t see that as I did have Lua installed and just got stuck right in.
