So what's up here? Is it my brain or mIRC which seems to be unable to calculate?

$calc(3893208833356031+6864822661557624) - This isn't the hardest thing to calculate yet mIRC seems unable to find a proper answer.

It should return '10758031494913655' yet it returned '10758031494913656'.
What's going on guise?

ps if you change the "...624" into "...625" You should notice the bug.

I'm not entirely sure right now, but as I first showed I think this is the issue.

Also check here

Check the search, there's quite a few calc bug reports.


Gone.

your correct 1 + 1 does = 3 but only for large values of 1

It might be spiffy if mIRC used something like this, though it obviously would need to limit output to something less than 1k digits (for the line length limits).


If I knew now what I will know then... maybe things will have been different...

my guess is that it would be limited to the mIRC-standard 900 somthing :\

Sounds like a 32bit integer limit.

there talking about something else, not the current limit, which i think your right on, but rather a math engine that can do 32,000 digit values, only problem would be mircs 900 or so string length limit then.

Ah yes that makes sense.
