    It may not be exactly what you had in mind, and is rather less sophisticated 
    than the software mentioned by Steven Wepster, but I will mention GNU bc, 
    http://www.gnu.org/software/bc/bc.html, in case you are not familiar with it. 
     It's Free (with a capital F :-).  It's used at the command line, so not 
    everyone's cup of tea;  for your requirement of saving data, you would 
    provide input in a text file, and pipe output to a file also.  Its native 
    environment is Unix, but it has apparently been ported to Windows.
