[REBOL] Re: percent! - new datatype request
From: anton:lexicon at: 7-Jun-2002 4:35
To be consistent, 100 * 50% should give 5000%. Addition and subtraction between integer and percent types is ambiguous. What would you expect from 200 - 50% ? There are four different, but all, depending on your point of view, correct, possibilities. Just remember that % means "per cent", or "divided by 100". So 100% is not the same as 100. Not a bad idea overall, though. Regards, Anton.
