When doing a calculation that involves a lot of numbers, it is very handy to use a calculator that has a paper tape.  As you enter each number and press the plus key (for a sum), the number prints on the tape with the operator next to it.  This type of calculator is often used by accountants, for example.

I wish KCalc had a menu item that would let me turn on a paper tape.

have you guys thought the history could be saved to a text file ?

why not a quick mail function :)

A history is almost mandatory to check what you have written
Comment 3 jeremy9856 2015-07-05 10:38:20 UTC
12 years later can we have this please ? It's useful.

I have used kcalc in its simple mode for years. It's perfect for me except that it does not have an adding machine tape or history. Please add this.

The only Linux calculators I have found with this feature are very complex and cluttered for my needs. There is no simple alternative that I could find.
