I think NDN is considered a good frontend for archivers.

PS: WingZip 16.0 released 2011-10-22 :-)

What's new:

> Increased bloat to almost 60 MiB

cool ...

> Avoid email size limits and send up to 2GB, hassle-free

how ???

> Upload and post any type of file directly to Facebook

but I deprecate F***-Book ...

> Tap into your computer's full zipping power with our new 64-bit zip engine

how does it perform on 80486, 80386, 8086 ?

> Zip and write files directly to Blu-ray Disc

but I deprecate B***-Disc ...

> Enjoy greater flexibility with support for additional compressed file formats

for example ? because 7-ZIP worx for me ...

my system has always maximum performance so I don't need this ... but I'm hungry ... please add a PIZZA-Feature in 17.0 :-)

ACalc.exe

I've been using the command-line ACALC.EXE for ages. It's from IBM PC-DOS 7.0/2000. The updated version with a fix is available here:

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/ps/products/pcdos/fixes/v7.0/d70acalc.zip

Here's the /? help:

                 A=All (decimal, binary, octal, and hexadecimal)
  expression   Specifies a valid numeric expression.

Numbers prefixed with 'b', 'o', and 'x' are assumed to be binary, octal,
and hexadecimal respectively.  Decimal numbers are not prefixed.

Calculator

Big Thank you to everybody for the tips. At this moment the best command-line calculator for me is tcalc.
Does somebody know a calculator with GUI (like the one in WinXP)?

if you use a dos /freedos gui interface like desktop2 by Felix Ritter you'll have a fine & simple gui calculator ( and other) on your desktop.

Didn't DV/X come with a calculator? For me DV/X always was the closest to a GUI on dos.

Why he wants/needs a GUI calculator is beyond me. But here's a pic of DV/X's calc (more pics from here).

Sadly, DV/X isn't sold nor even available in any form anymore (though developer libs for DJGPP v1 still exist on mirrors).

Re: Calculator

Thanks a lot for your (and everybody's) tip. Balicalc is the best GUI calculator for me, so I can add it to my favorite file manager Doszip.

I use pcalc, the programmer's calculator. Needed it to do some logical bitwise operations. Took ages to find one that works as well as this one does. Here's the download text blurb:

PCALC

Programmer's calculator, command line utility.

There was always a loophole when it came to a need to covert between hexadecimal / decimal / octal / binary.

Especially if it involved an operation like 0x1234 + 0x20 It took a lot of hard work, and mostly a good pocket calculator.

Main features:

Full math parser, paranthases, add, sub, mult, div, exponential
Automatic conversion between HEX DEC OCT BIN numbers
Mixing different bases in one expression
Definable variables
Math constants (E PI ...)
Built in math functions (sin/cos/sqrt ...)


Download
You can download pcalc at the Sourceforge website.

Surprisingly, pcalc-2.tar.lzma does indeed have pcalc-2/win32/pcalc.exe (as well as C sources), which is also surprisingly a MS C (circa 1992) DOS (!) .EXE.
EDIT: But it's cmdline only, no GUI (obviously?).
