Using the calculator in the terminal

Hi to all, this is a small issue I had the last days. Use a calculator in the terminal. I have been working and sometimes need to do an arithmetic operation so I decided to open  calc (Ubuntu Calculator Default). But I was wondering, there has to be a way to use a calculator in the CLI. So after some search in the engine I found this question in Ask Ubuntu and tried several options.

I will only write about the  best solution I found for my needs. In the question, you can find several solutions and probably you will find a different solution that will be best for you.

CALC (Arbitrary precision calculator)

Calc is an arbitrary precision arithmetic system that uses a C-like language. Calc is useful as a calculator, an algorithm prototyper and as a mathematical research tool. More importantly, calc provides one with a machine independent means of computation. Calc comes with a rich set of builtin mathematical and programmatic functions.

If you want to install calc you can use the following command:

sudo apt-get install apcalc

Ansible using plugins for dynamic inventories

This is a small post about how to use inventory plugins in Ansible. If you are looking the script way I recommend to read this article: http://gloriasilveira.com/setting-up-ansible-for-aws-with-dynamic-inventory-ec2.html It explains really good this or you can watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnbqO1kTPqE&t=6s But if you’re looking to use inventory this article can help you. First of all, why should I used inventory if all over the internet they’re using the python scripts? Well, Ansible recommends it: Inventory plugins take advantage of the most recent updates to Ansible’s core code. We recommend plugins over scripts for dynamic inventory. You can write your own plugin to connect to additional dynamic inventory sources. https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/user_guide/intro_dynamic_inventory.html The actual ansible guide is quite good, but there was a step that got me confused, probably my english isn’t so good and I didn’t understood it.
