AutoCalc Functions come in two flavours:

•General Convertor

Add this at the front of the equation and everything after it gets converted. General Converters always go at the front of the equation and have a $ before them.

•Select Convertor

Add this before each number in the equation to work on just that number.

$rf Regular Mode

$rfs Special Mode

Rounds fraction to the nearest division.

Say you have your fraction 2/3, but you need it in the closest possible eighths, so to round 2/3 to the nearest eighth, you type:

$rf 2/3,8

Now, there are two modes for this function; both will provide the closest possible value and will round up or down to get your closest fraction.

•$rf mode

owill try to preserve the denominator you chose and will not simplify the fraction

•$rfs mode

oprovides a more accurate answer, but does not try to preserve the denominator

owill simpifly the fraction if possible (in other words, $rf 1/2,8 = 1/2 because it simplifies 4/8).

$rf 2/3,8 = 5/8

$rfs 2/3,8 = 431/647

$rf 1/2,4 = 2/4

$rfs 1/2,4 = 1/2

Here $rf gives us 2/3 because the denominator provided is 3 and it tries to give the closest value in that division

However, $rfs is more accurate because it doesn't have to match the denominator.

Remember that we are trying to round a fraction to the nearest fraction. Here we are rounding to 3; if you wanted a fraction that was exactly 1/2 ÷ 3 you wouldn't use the Round Fraction function - you would simply calculate (1/2)/3 = 0.2 and use the Convert Answer to Fraction function to get 13/64.

$rf 1/2,3 = 2/3

$rfs 1/2,3 = 1/2

$h

A General Convertor

$h 10 = A

$h 11+1 = C

$b

A General Convertor

$b 2+2 = 100

A Select Convertor

Use ' for unsigned binary and two ' for a signed binary number.

'011 = 3

'11 = -1 (unsigned binary with one ' )

''11 = -1 (signed binary with two ' )

'100+'100 = 8

A Select Convertor: 0x

(There isn't a General Convertor for this yet)

Just type 0x in front of any number to make it a hex value (rendered as decimal in the answer). You can mix this into your regular equation alongside decimal values.

0x10 + 0x11 = 33

10+0xA+1 = 21

$c

Converts a character into it's ascii code point.

It ignores the space key, however. But in case you need to know that, space is 32.

$c 4 = 52

$c # = 35

$a

Converts an ascii code into it's character

$a 32 = [space] (even tells you if the character is a space character! If it just put a space you wouldn't see it)

$a 35 = #

$a 52 = 4

$u

Converts a unicode code into it's character.

$u 23 = #

$u 34 = 4

$u 0023 = #

$u 0x0023 = #

$n

Converts a character into it's unicode code point. It won't fetch the space character though. But in case you need it, it is 0x20.

$n # = 00x23

$n 4 = 00x34
