Recent changes to 541: rat/factor exponents are fixnums (doc)https://sourceforge.net/p/maxima/bugs/541/2004-03-25T03:35:48Zrat/factor exponents are fixnums (doc)2004-03-25T03:35:48Z2004-03-25T03:35:48ZStavros Macrakishttps://sourceforge.net/u/macrakis/https://sourceforge.net86b4d23000009b36d35c03088b2678863c2578fcIt does not seem to be documented anywhere that the
exponents in a CRE expression are fixnums. For example,
rat\(x^\(2^31\)\) => x. This also affects functions which
use Rat internally, e.g. factor, ratsubst....
This is not a bug, but it is an important documentation
lacuna.
