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.
