Chapter 8 Arithmetic Evaluation
 1

ECL^{i}PS^{e} versions older than 5.5 optionally supported single precision
floats. This is no longer the case.

We have chosen to use the term bounded real rather than
interval in order to avoid confusion with interval variables
as used in the interval arithmetic constraint solvers

 This is in contrast to a floating point number, which represents
a real number which lies somewhere in the vicinity of the float

 Caution: In ECL^{i}PS^{e} versions up to 5.8, mod was the
remainder corresponding to //, i.e. behaved like rem
