I noticed a problem (which I suspect is related to the introduction of
integers in Lua53), and I’d like to know if this is ‘official’ behavior, or some
sort of bug. The behavior can be seen in this small example:
function fact(n)
if n == 0 then return 1 end
return fact(n1) * n
end
print(fact(66),fact(66.))
Using fp parameter, return correct (?) result Using integer parameter,
return 0 (zero) result!!!!I don’t know what the root of this problem but if it happens to be related
to integer overflow, should it be converted to floating point, and continue
‘crunching’ rather than give a completely wrong result?
Thanks.
