Sounds like apcalc which has been in Debian since more than 10 years...
$ calc '0xff + min(10,20) + 0b0010'
"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.
Is there any benefit for another command-line calculator?
