Re: Kind of "overflow" in integers

The correctly rounded intermediate calculations are: sin(9) = 0.1564344650402308690101053194671669 cos(0.1564344650402308690101053194671669) = 0.9999962727428850241175162050...

Re: 43S News

The last poll on this subject being in 2012, I would tend to propose a new poll to the roughly 80 members of the forum having "pre-ordered" a 43S in this thread.
