I am happy with what I made today. A calculator. Yes, a calculator that just works. No need to take care of what you enter in it, just enter whatever you can and it will show you the correct answer to your query.
You can try it here.
Yesterday’s project was also similar one, but it had tons of limitations. You could only do one type of operation in it. And even then it had couple of irritating bugs.
So today morning I sat out to write a script to evaluate a string. Any string. My aim was to be able to take any string and be able to process it and return the answer. It was a hard task. I tried couple of approaches and everything failed initially. But slowly I made things work and now it forms the backbone of today’s project.
