Is it possible that on a 32-bit machine the maximum value for a Real
number in Tcl language is 10^10 ?

Instinctively I'd saythe number of bits assigned to the representation of
a Real number is independent on the machine h/w architecture ... but I'm
not familiar with Tcl and may be mistaken ...

Thank you,
