BPFK Section: Digits

From Lojban
Jump to: navigation, search
This page is imported from version 12 of the page BPFK Section: Digits from the lojban Tiki.

The base of a number string should be base-ten, unless:

  • explicitly specified by ju'u, AND/OR
  • the string contains hexadecimal digits, in which case it is defaults to hexadecimal, AND/OR
  • overridden by context

It should not be necessary to state this in the cmavo definitions here, but rather in the definition for ju'u.

I assume that it is unnecessary to formally define the mechanism of big-endian positional notation. At any rate, I am unable to do so myself.

Interactions with other sections
