I need to install
bc (I think this is a language so I am guessing I need to install a parser but I seriously have no clue - would I need to install anything else?) onto Ubuntu 12.04 and any additional maths extension that exists for it. The only place I found to try to download it from was from here which had insufficient instructions for me to be able to actually get this done. Looking around on the site the last update appears to be from the year 2000 which made me very wary of trying to install it and I am not even sure if this the place to get it from or not.
I ought to add I really have no clue what I am doing. I need an idiot's guide to the entire installation process.
Really really stuck on this.
