GNU Emacs Calc 2.02 Manual
7.10 The Calc Mode Line
This section is a summary of all symbols that can appear on the
Calc mode line, the highlighted bar that appears under the Calc
stack window (or under an editing window in Embedded Mode).
The basic mode line format is:
--%%-Calc: 12 Deg other modes (Calculator)
The `%%' is the Emacs symbol for "read-only"; it shows that
regular Emacs commands are not allowed to edit the stack buffer
as if it were text.
The word `Calc:' changes to `CalcEmbed:' if Embedded Mode
is enabled. The words after this describe the various Calc modes
that are in effect.
The first mode is always the current precision, an integer.
The second mode is always the angular mode, either
Here is a complete list of the remaining symbols that can appear
on the mode line:

In addition, the symbols
~Active can appear
as minor modes on an Embedded buffer's mode line. See section 17. Embedded Mode.
