-: Calculations On Command Prompt :-
« on: November 21, 2010, 12:37:36 PM »
   

The command processor CMD.EXE comes with a mini-calculator that can perform simple arithmetic on 32-bit signed integers:

C:\>set /a 2+2
4
C:\>set /a 2*(9/2)
8
C:\>set /a (2*9)/2
9
C:\>set /a "31>>2"
7

Note that we had to quote the shift operator since it would otherwise be misinterpreted as a "redirect stdout and append" operator.

For more information, type set /? at the command prompt.

Thanks Oracle, this is good to know, because some times when one is surfing the net
you will want to do one or two calculation especially when you are doing some transaction online.
