Re: Testing the reference implementation

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 77 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 77 are here. Eventually, the entire history will be moved there, including any new messages.

The reason for this behavior is that FLOAT-FRACTION-LENGTH in
the file 'scheme48-1.3/scheme/rts/floatnum.scm' tries to compute the
exponent of a float value x by multiplying by 1, 2, 4, 8, etc. until the
product is integral---which never happens for x = +inf. This is initiated
by a call to ZERO? on +INF.0 in procedure /* of 'flonum.scm' of the
SRFI's reference implementation.

The shortest program producing the same error is:

,config ,load packages.scm
,in r6rs/will
(let ((n r5rs->number)) (/ (n 1.0) (/ (n 1.0) (n 0.0))))

So far for today...
