HP Prime: Long integers (continued) - Helge Gabert - 11-06-2013

This is probably related to an earlier post a while back about long integers,

exact(1e14)=1
Really?

I am getting similar results for larger exponents (in CAS mode and non-CAS mode). The cut-off appears to be 1E14, though.

Yes, anything greater than 1e14 exhibits this behavior with exact().

approx() seems to be OK, though (regardless of the magnitude of the argument).
