I do not know the answer. But this reminds me of another question.

The largest number that can be represented in signed 32-bit number

is 32768 * 65536 -1 = 2147483647. It seems that the maximum recognizable

number in MicroWorlds is about 12 digits. 2147483647 is only 10 digits.

So, the number representation and arith. operation in MicroWorlds may not

be in binary. That is, ASCII string representation of numbers

seem to be NOT converted into the native binary number and then

being computed using the native (machine) instructions.

Does anyone know how MicroWorlds handles the number arithmetics?

Thanks.
