    How many lines of code would be necessary to slip malware into such an app?
    Oh, boy.
    Probably one.

    Do you understand how open source works though?

    Have you looked though? It isn't trivial.

    Possibly but I couldn't figure it out.

    It isn't full of if{addition} then {answer=input1 + input2}

    I have an emulator of the classic HP41CV.

    RPN is far superior.

    Hi folks

    again Linux has had source code available for Donkeys years

    Here's another one where source code available in the download link too something really useful this time : a decent partition manager GPARTED

    The iso is available as well which can be used as a boot up stand alone partition manager with a really easy interface too !!!! -

    Works on Windows so handles NTFS partitions too etc. Good one to look at as you can then learn about partition table and file systems. Code though a bit complex - so not for a beginner !!!!

    GParted -- Download


    I'm still fazed at what the big deal is about the calculator announcement -- I remember years ago on Windows 95 running a REXX interpreter which would create a calculator far superior to the example showed in 2019 !!!!!!!

    Ms should have a new motto :

    "Yesterday's Technology Tomorrow" !!!!

    Also if people think open source open code can be stuffed full of malware - do they really understand what source code is -- have they ever written 1 line of code in their life !!!.

    Cheers
