If you're the kind of person that tries to do absolutely everything at the command line, then you'll like the spreadsheet calculator, SC. Also, if you're comfortable with vi, then sc will come naturally to you. In addition to using the arrow keys for navigation you can use the familiar h, j, k, and l keys. Like vi, g represents go.
