Normally you interact with the calculator in the Console tab of the
work area. If you are running the text only version then the console
will be the only thing that is available to you. If you want to use
Genius Mathematics Tool as a calculator only, just type in your expression here and it
will be evaluated.
Type your expression into the Console work area and press enter and
the expression will be evaluated. Expressions are written in a
language called GEL. The most simple GEL expression just looks like
mathematics. For example
genius> 30*70 + 67^3.0 + ln(7) * (88.8/100)
genius> 62734 + 812634 + 77^4 mod 5
genius> | sin(37) - e^7 |
genius> sum n=1 to 70 do 1/n
(Last is the harmonic sum from 1 to 70)

Suppose you have previously saved some GEL commands as a program to a file and
you now want to execute them.
To load this program from the file path/to/program.gel,
Genius Mathematics Tool
genius> load path/to/program.gel
keeps track of the current directory.
To list files in the current directory type ls
, to change directory
do cd directory
as in the unix command shell.
