I believe it was you who asked for the test for the Pentium bug. Here it is:
(a/b)*b, with a=4,195,835 and b=3,145,727.
Of course the answer should be 4,195,835.
I'd suggest trying it in a couple of software implementations (but not Windows'
calculator program, which is so buggy that it gives the wrong answer to: 2.01
minus 2). Also, try it with the a and the b reversed.
Good luck. Harry
