bcal-2.0 – storage and general-purpose calculator (Byte CALculator)


bcal (Byte CALculator) is a REPL CLI utility for storage expressions,
unit conversions or address calculations. If you can't calculate the hex
address offset for (512 - 16) MiB, or the value when the 43rd bit of a
64-bit address is set mentally, bcal is for you.

It has a bc mode for general-purpose numerical calculations.

* evaluate arithmetic expressions involving storage units
* perform general purpose calculations (using bc)
* convert to IEC/SI standard data storage units
* interactive mode with the last valid result stored for reuse
* show the address in bytes
* show address as LBA:OFFSET
* convert CHS to LBA and vice versa
* base conversion to binary, decimal and hex
* custom sector size, max heads/cylinder and max sectors/track
