Bug Description

Binary package hint: gcalctool

Description: Ubuntu 9.04
Release: 9.04

  Installed: 5.26.0-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 5.26.0-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 5.26.0-0ubuntu1 0
        500 jaunty/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Under View, select Programming.

Enter number 1, Then select "<" and 3 places.

Number 8 appears. Which is correct. However, the bit editor still shows: 0000 0001.

It should have been: 0000 1000

In fact any shifts (left and right) doesn't cause the bit editor to update.

Regular arithmetic (addition, e.x.) does cause the the bit editor to update.

    - Use inverse notation for trigonometric functions, i.e. "asin" -> "sin⁻¹"
    - Use lowercase notation for trigonometric and logarithm functions to look
      more like standard mathematical notation
    - Put spacing around functions, i.e. "sin" -> " sin "
    - Use subscript for logarithm base two, i.e. "log2" -> "log₂"
