Addendum: Free42 with IEEE 7542008 decimal floatingpoint
Quote:Because the significand is not normalized, most values with less than 34 significant digits have multiple possible representations; 1×10^{2}=0.1×10^{3}=0.01×10^{4}, etc. Zero has 12288 possible representations (24576 if you include both signed zeros).Thus maybe not a bug. Still strange. I'd definitely recommend to normalize the results.
