Stupid PHP one liners Google calc
August 24, 2006 @ 07:22:10

A long time ago, I wrote a two line hack that let you use Google as a command line calculator. It eventually ended up in the 2nd and 3rd editions of Google Hacks.

The code calls the Google Calculator page and pulls back in the contents, allowing you to pass in any sort of calulation you might want and pass back out the result all cleaned up and parsed out.
