Notes:

1. Overloaded the enter function for user input, because we want add to add it the history. The enter function is also called from other places in the code where we don’t want to add to history.

2. As mentioned in the assignment hints, floating point implementation was possible to add with a single-line of code:

if (digit != ".") || (digit == "." && display.text!.rangeOfString(".") == nil)

3. Pi implementation does not use the performOperation function but inline code since it’s easy to add:

case "π": displayValue = M_PI; enter()
