Calculator (BigDecimal)

I am experimenting with BigDecimal to allow for all numbers (but still having some problems).

Does anyone know how to fix the problems with using 0's in a decimal?

You have to click 0 about five times for it to start adding zeros. I think it is to do with my MathContext (I need to show more precision, even though 111.0=111.00). My code is like this: mc=new MathContext(display.length());

I am going to try and use .SetScale();

Still small bug of pressing . then 0, because . adds a zero anyway.

Still seems to be occasional glitch with very small decimals (0.00 20+)

more specifically, glitch is with numbers like 0.000...1111...000 etc
