### NY Lost Funds

 kc5tja Who said it did? SamB and, back then, that market segment was using 68kor earlier...anyway... kc5tja I'd be happier with 68K, but that's still a CISC architecture, and prone to obnoxiously long instructions. action kc5tja grew up with the Amiga, and even worked for Amiga at one point. I know all about the 68K. :) kc5tja grew up with the Amiga, and even worked for Amiga at one point. I know all about the 68K. :) SamB they are all finite-length though kc5tja SamB: Bzzt -- nope. SamB what?which one is not? kc5tja 68K instructions are variable length, but in chunks of 16 bits. SamB I said finite length jcreigh lol kc5tja I took that to mean uniform length (as with RISC). SamB meaning, as far as I know, there are no prefix words kc5tja But Intel's instructions are also all finite-length. sorear 17/24 LoganCapaldo_ > let fac n 0 = n; fac n x = fac (n * x) (x - 1) in fac 1 (fac 1 15) lambdabot Terminated LoganCapaldo_ What, no get a calculator? action mbishop pokes sorear mbishop pokes sorear kc5tja LoganCapaldo_: If I'm not mistaken, wouldn't 15!! = (15!)! ? Your fac definition doesn't appear to evaluate that. LoganCapaldo_ Sure it does> let fac n 0 = n; fac n x = fac (n * x) (x - 1) in let fac15 = fac 1 15 in fac 1 fac15 lambdabot Terminated glguy lol, you might start a bit smaller sorear double factorial is NOT factorial . factorial15!! = product [1,3..15] LoganCapaldo_ [1,3 ?? glguy http://mathworld.wolfram.com/DoubleFactorial.html lambdabot Title: Double Factorial -- from Wolfram MathWorld sorear (at least that's what wikipedia said a few months ago)> product [1,3..15] lambdabot 2027025 LoganCapaldo_ :(That number is far too small sorear > [1,3..15] lambdabot [1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15] glguy double factorial of an even number is product [2,4..n]
