Challenge (1) CLI Calculator #1
In this Python challenge, you will attempt to a make a CLI (Command Line Interface) calculator. Basically, what that means is: a calculator that can interpret simple math equations (e.g. 2+3-5*6 => -25). It must correctly compute addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It sounds simple, but it can get a little complicated at times. You cannot use eval() or anything like that, you MUST parse everything yourself.
I am really interested in what you come up with. Good luck!
151st post!

RE: Challenge (1) CLI Calculator #2
Done!
Code:
```import re def isMore(tokens):     for t in tokens:         if t == "*" or t == "/":             return True     return False def lex(equation):     # remove all the whitespaces from the equation string     equation = equation.replace(" ", "")     return re.findall("[0-9]+|[\+, \-, \*, \/]", equation)      def evaluate1(tokens, isOrigin = False):     for i in range(0, len(tokens)):         if tokens[i] == "*":             a = int(tokens[i - 1]) * int(tokens[i + 1])             tokens = tokens[:i - 1]             tokens.insert(i, a)             break         elif tokens[i] == "/":             a = int(tokens[i - 1]) / int(tokens[i + 1])             tokens = tokens[:i - 1]             tokens.insert(i, a)             break     if isMore(tokens):         tokens = evaluate1(tokens)     return tokens def evaluate2(tokens, isOrigin = False):       if tokens[1] == "+":         a = int(tokens[0]) + int(tokens[2])         tokens = tokens[3:]         tokens.insert(0, a)                  elif tokens[1] == "-":         a = int(tokens[0]) - int(tokens[2])         tokens = tokens[3:]         tokens.insert(0, a)     if len(tokens) > 1:         tokens = evaluate2(tokens)     if isOrigin:         return tokens[0]     else:         return tokens equation = raw_input("Enter an equation: ") tokens = lex(equation) tokens = evaluate1(tokens, isOrigin = True) print(evaluate2(tokens, isOrigin = True))```

And no, I didn't search up anything about this type of calculator for help.

Well, since my last code was just a lame hack... I re-wrote it to make it much neater and more professional.
No recursion this time... too clunky.
Code:
```import re def lex(equation):     # remove all the whitespaces from the equation string     equation = equation.replace(" ", "")     return re.findall("[0-9]+|[\+, \-, \*, \/]", equation) def evalMulDiv(tokens):     i = 0     while i < len(tokens):         if tokens[i] == "*":             tokens = tokens[:i - 1] + [int(tokens[i - 1]) * int(tokens[i + 1])] + tokens[i + 2:]             i -= 2         elif tokens[i] == "/":             tokens = tokens[:i - 1] + [int(tokens[i - 1]) / int(tokens[i + 1])] + tokens[i + 2:]             i -= 2         i += 1     return tokens def evalAddSub(tokens):     i = 0     while i < len(tokens):         if tokens[i] == "+":             tokens = tokens[:i - 1] + [int(tokens[i - 1]) + int(tokens[i + 1])] + tokens[i + 2:]             i -= 2         elif tokens[i] == "-":             tokens = tokens[:i - 1] + [int(tokens[i - 1]) - int(tokens[i + 1])] + tokens[i + 2:]             i -= 2         i += 1     return tokens def calc(equation):     tokens = lex(equation)     tokens = evalMulDiv(tokens)     return int(evalAddSub(tokens)[0]) equation = raw_input("> ") print(calc(equation))```

@Megan! You try!
I think I will make a guide on CLI calculators soon. (possibly non-language specific -- pseudocode)

RE: Challenge (1) CLI Calculator #4
I'm new to Python and don't really know how your script works. Mine sucks but I did my best. Don't know if this is what you were looking for or not.

Code:
```def a(n1,n2):     return float(n1 + n2) def s(n1,n2):     return float(n1 - n2) def m(n1,n2):     return float(n1 * n2) def d(n1,n2):     return float(n1 / n2) c = raw_input("Operation? (add, sub, mult, div): ") n1 = float(raw_input("Enter the first number: ")) n2 = float(raw_input("Enter the second number: ")) if c == "add":     print(a(n1,n2)) elif c == "sub":     print(s(n1,n2)) elif c == "mult":     print(m(n1,n2)) elif c == "div":     print(d(n1,n2)) else:     print("The operation you entered does not exist.")```

Well, that's not exactly what I was looking for. But it is okay; your did your best! Cool on you for learning Python though.
Basically, what I meant by a CLI calculator is that it takes a string such as "2 +8/2 * 4" and outputs the correct number (18). (note the use of operator precedence -- I do not require parentheses though)
Thanks for trying!!!

NOTE: Windows calc.exe doesn't even use operator precedence!?!?!

RE: Challenge (1) CLI Calculator #6
If you could explain your code that'd be cool, especially the eval functions.

Why tokens?

Ok, I will make a separate guide on this.
Be looking for it.

I've finished!
Enjoy!

RE: Challenge (1) CLI Calculator #8
J:
Code:
`".;2}input`

Python (supports addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponents, and modulus):
Code:
```import re import operator as op ops={'+': op.add,'-': op.sub,'*': op.mul,'/': op.div,'^': op.pow,'%': op.mod} while 1:     e=raw_input('} ')     for i in re.finditer('[\+,\-,\*,\/,\^,\%]',e): print ops[i.group()](int(e[:i.start()]),int(e[i.start()+1:]))```

Cool! Really compact code.
But.. your code can only do one operation per input. (you can't do "5+5*5" or "4*3-2*3")
You should be able to do an equation of arbitrary length.

I just got bored in history, I'll take it seriously and finish it later.
