[REBOL] Decimal accuracy
From: chalz:earthlink at: 10-Jan-2003 22:53
Okay, I don't think I like this.
>> 261424513284453.055884726735293525 - 261424513284453.0
Huh? How about this one:
>> 61424513284453.055884726735293525 - 61424513284453.0
Closer, but... Something's obviously not right here. In fact, it makes me
curious as to whether or not
>> pi ** 29
.. is true. Tried it out in Windows /Core 2.5.3 and RedHat /Core 2.5.0. Am
I missing something, or does REBOL just decide that, once you reach a certain
value, accuracy is a moot point?
(In my first example, the first value is pi ** 29 in Windows calculator,
while the second is pi ** 29 in REBOL..)
