I tried to create a file named in Chinese and another one in Hebrew with a commander - everything went fine. I will try to do the same with Lazarus, maybe it has a problem ?!?

I see no resemblance between Turl and Еличка.
Turls has an on-screen keyboard, which in my opinion is a waste of space. About features I cannot tell, I tried to calculate 2 + 2 with no success  :-*
Actually Еличка is inspired by the abandoned Num Lock Calculator, which I found very comfortable, but lacking some essential features (for example when pasting "123 000" in it , it did not understand it because of the space).

The point is that jwdietrich wrote a very good rpn engine, which is the basis for any calculator.

Thanks for the info, I suppose it would be beneficitial for serious apps, which is not my case.
TFPExpressionParser is quite okay for me, its main drawback from my point of view is that it requires quotation marks for strings.

One thing: the app saves a .txt and a .ini files with name in cyrillic characters. That names appears as "????.txt" and "?????.ini" on a not-cyrillic fonts machine, as my pc.
It could be useful  to save using the local character set of the machine...

This sounds very odd to me.
I have set
const
  SettingsFile ='Еличка.ini';

Now I have changed it to  SettingsFile : string ='Еличка.ini';   to make sure that the compiler is not considering it an AnsiString.
But even before that, I tried to set the filename to a string in Chinese and a string in Devanagari and everything looked fine.
I wonder if it is possible that your Windows does not have Cyrillic letters?
Or could it be the filesystem? I tried it on NTFS and FAT32 - still no issues with the filename.

You are right. The problem is that I use a file manager that doesn't recognize cyrillic characters. Indeed they are visible in other tools, for example in cmd window.
