CODE FOR CALCULATOR

Arduino
You enter the numbers and the signal togheter, like "2+3", or 8*2, and it gives the result
/* Serial arduino calculator
in this project, you can make basic
arithmetic with the help of arduino,
almost like a very rustic calculator.
It accepts two numbers and a signal, and
makes the operation, witch can be of +, -, * or /.
E.G. : send "2+3" (Without quotes and with no
space separing the info), and arduino answers 5.
Digit "7-3" and arduino te responde com 4.
