#2047 fpprec bug or bad command use?


Why when in wxMaxima (v. 5.21.1) i set for example fpprec : 1000, the result of 250! is printed as
323285626090910773232081455202[433 digits]000000000000000000000000000000 and not with all digits?

Using command line "version" the result is correctly printed with all digits.

    I think it is a feature of wxMaxima to abbreviate very long numbers for display. This is not a bug and it is not related to the option variable fpprec. In a terminal Maxima has not this feature.
    Perhaps it is a feature request to add the possibility to show very long numbers with all digits in wxMaxima too.
    Setting the status to pending and the resolution "works for me".
