Using a freshly compiled emulator, I removed bin file for a fresh start, then 77 ENTER 88 [y^x] keeps on crashing, with "segmentation fault 11".
Integer operation question:
77. ENTER 8. [y^x] works and when this real number is converted to short int it works. # 10, and the answer a short int.
Larger numbers fail. As test, I take:
2.0 ENTER 55 [y^x] which gives 3.6... x 10^16, within range of short int.
I then do # D which gives me 0 base 10. Not right. I expected it to give me a 15 odd significant digit integer with zeroes where the figures were gone.
2.0 ENTER 45 [y^x] gives 35 184 372 088 832., also within range of short int. I then do # D which gives me 35 184 372 088 832 base 10. Correct answer.
To confirm that 2^55 is within range of the short int, I do 2#10 ENTER 55 [y^x] which produces a short int of 36 028 797 018 963 968 base 10.
I take this, multiply by 1.0, and convert back to base 10 short int, i.e.: 1.0 [*] # D, and I get 0 base 10 again. Not correct.
Maybe I am misunderstanding the expected conversion from real to longint. If so, please refer to a source where I can read.
