[04/25/2008] v.0.2.1 is out. It's v0.2 + pixbuf-loaders installation, which solves the app loading problems as discussed below.
Calcoo is a RPN
and algebraic scientific calculator.
Features are as listed on official Calcoo homepage
# both RPN and algebraic modes
# bitmapped button labels and display glyths
# copy/paste interaction with the X clipboard
# two memory registers with displays
# displays for Y, Z, and T registers
Calcoo opens as a window on iLiad's screen. So you can scribble in pdf & calculate at the same time. You can move Calcoo's window with stylus on screen.
I tweaked the files b_main.c, b_settings.c & b_info.c to get Calcoo in it's own window. This is discussed below. "Settings" (!) & "Info" (?) dialog open a 2nd window. Have a look at the screenshot.
You can find the src
on my projects page.

: with versions for Linux, Windows & Mac.
[2007/10/12]: There is a problem. Calcoo doesn't start anymore. I will work on it.
[2007/11/03]: Sorry for the delay. A new version calcoo.iLiad.0.2 is out. Now with an installer. I tested it on CF/main memory.

# connect iLiad via USB to PC, this kills Calcoo.
Heh, it's a beta. It's just a "Hello world of MR's developer community".
Well, all buttons of Calcoo are working. If this no-exit-button is solved, it' will be a tiny calculator for iLiad.
Why there is no normal exiting of program?
Because I'm a newbie to porting.
More in detail:
# Calcoo hasn't got a menu, where we could choose "close app" like in other programs.
# Calcoo starts without window, therefore we can't see x-button in top bar.
Solution of known crux:
# Create a "exit-button".
# Get Calcoo started as a window.
