GNU bc 1.04 and GNU dc 1.1 are now available in one file from

        ftp://ftp.gnu.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/bc-1.04.tar.gz

`bc' is an arbitrary precision calculator language.  It allows one
to write and execute simple or complex programs to do calculations
using arbitrary precision real numbers.

`dc' is a "desk calculator" that does similar things as bc, but
with a different user interface.

This version has a complete restructuring of the source tree.

bc version 1.04 contains the following user-visible changes:

  * New command line option (-q)

  * Long command line options (--quiet, --mathlib, --version, --standard,
        --warn)

  * Passing "command line args" via an environment variable (BC_ENV_ARGS)

  * A change in the way array parameters are dealt with to be POSIX
        compliant.

  * bug fixes in several places

dc version 1.1 contains the following user-visible changes:

  * New command line options (-f, -e)

  * New dc commands

Please send bug reports for these versions of bc and dc to
