bc: The GNU bc arbitrary precision calculator language

 GNU bc is an interactive algebraic language with arbitrary precision which
 follows the POSIX 1003.2 draft standard, with several extensions including
 multi-character variable names, an `else' statement and full Boolean
 expressions. GNU bc does not require the separate GNU dc program.

dc: The GNU dc arbitrary precision reverse-polish calculator

 GNU dc is a reverse-polish desk calculator which supports unlimited
 precision arithmetic. It also allows you to define and call macros.
 A reverse-polish calculator stores numbers on a stack. Entering a number
 pushes it on the stack. Arithmetic operations pop arguments off the
 stack and push the results.
