You have arrived at the CalcBot documentation repository, where you can learn about CalcBot's features, or try and troubleshoot issues you are having with CalcBot.
Get started by selecting one of the topics below, or scroll down a bit more to see the quick start guide. Feel free to contact me on Discord (POOLED#9848) or join my very chill support server here.
The bot's default prefix is
c-. You can change it by running
c-admin setprefix <prefix>.
The most commonly used CalcBot command is
c-calculate, which you can also run with the shorter alias,
c-c. Simply type
c-calculate followed by an expression, like
1+1, to get the result, for example:
> c-calculate 1+12> c-calculate 3*412> c-calculate (11-4)*214
CalcBot's calculate command supports even more features like variable defining, complex numbers, and a large library of functions. You can find a full list of these features at this page.
Here is a list of permissions CalcBot needs to operate properly:
Attach files - CalcBot generates and attaches images when using
c-regression. Disallowing this permission will break those commands.
Read message history
View channel - This permission is used to view voice channels. This is not needed by CalcBot at all, however it is automatically enabled when allowing the Read messages permission.
Enabling these permissions will enhance CalcBot's functionality, however they are not required:
Manage messages - This allows CalcBot to delete user messages as they provide input while using the
c-formula command to save space, and allows CalcBot to remove a user's reactions on CalcBot's messages described in the Add reactions permission.
Add reactions - This allows CalcBot to add reactions to its help messages / messages. Users can react with the same reactions to delete a message, scroll through command pages, etc.
Please use the
c-anonfeaturerequest command, or come let me know at my support server! It's incredibly easy and takes less than 10 seconds to let me know of problems. However, very few users generally make reports, leading me to believe CalcBot is flawless, which definitely isn't true (yet).
Please also be as detailed as you can in your request / report, since I unfortunately don't possess mind-reading abilities (yet). One of my old requests came from a user not in my support server and it simply read "make the graphs interactive". As you can imagine, this request remains unfulfilled.
Here are some other questions some users have had:
That isn't a question, but a lot of things could've gone wrong if this happens. One of the most common issues is that the resulting message was too long (over 2000 characters); in this case, Discord will not allow the message to be sent, and CalcBot will not respond to your command. Another possible issue could simply be there was an error during the computation of the command, but there was no reply to let you know of the error. In either case, this should be reported using the feature request commands.
That also isn't a question, but what?? Report it with
c-featurerequest / c-anonfeaturerequest, fast!
I've implemented and fixed many feature requests and reports by users! All feature requests are shown in the #feature-request channel in my support server, and requests that I've completed are marked with a checkmark emoji.
I see what you did there
