I apologize for posting a question to the wrong mailing list. I'm relying
on the generosity and understanding of the subscribers.
I've no experience of programming in Tcl language.
Today I was shown the wierd behaviour of a Tcl/Tk GUI and asked to help
fix the following problem.
Basically a parameter representing a scale factor is entered through the
keyboard. If the entered value is less than 10^10 then the program
behaviour is correct. If the entered value exceeds 10^10 then no error is
eturned but the interface behaviour is not correct as the scaling factor
is not correctly applied.
1) is there a maximum value that can be represented ?
2) if the answer to 1) is "yes" then is 10^10 the maximum value that can
be stored in a variable ?
3) if the answers to both 1) and 2) is "yes" then is it possible to deal
with values greater than 10^10 ? How ?
Thank you very much for your help.
