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.
