Hi,

A lot of time the discussion has come up do evaluate math on the commandline.

Never did I myself had much need for it but today I realized for a project it would come in handy.

What is the status of this? Can we evaluate math like 25+42 in any way as commandline input already?

Thanks

To answer my own question:

Yes you can :

http://docs.mcneel.com/rhino/5/help/en-us/index.htm#user_interface/command-line_calculator.htm

```
Command-line calculator
Allows entering mathematical notation on the command line in response to prompts for numbers.
Type =(...) on the command line to evaluate what is inside the parentheses.
The mathematical symbols are
+ add
- subtract
* multiply
/ divide
** exponentiation (raise to the power of)
Examples using the Point command:
0,=(3/4+12*2)
=(2.4*(8-2)),=(2.5*2)
=(sqrt(8)-6),0,0
The math module in Python is also supported which means you have access to functions like sin, cos, tan, pi, sqrt, etc. These are listed at http://docs.python.org/library/math.html.
