    Mac Binary Calculator
    Ok, maybe Im not using it correctly but Im trying to use the mac calculator on my macbook air in. Windows version seems to work far easier to convert a decimal number into binary.

    I go into programmer mode and for example, I cant seem to convert 209 into binary...

    Which calculator? I just went over to dashboard where I have one of the scientific calc gadgets - and typed in 209 then used the drop down box to switch to binary and it gave me the correct answer.

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    I use the shell (specifically bc) for these kinds of equations.

    For instance.
    Mikes-iMac: mike$ echo "ibase=10;obase=2;209"|bc
    But I work all day, every day, in either a korn or bash shell (generally korn), so having another window open for simple calculation is redundant for me.
