Okay, already posted this in a different thread months ago, but my v4 vocabulary wasn’t good enough to bring my point across, so…
i may have found a bug, maybe it’s a feature, i don’t know.
The thing is:
When you have a (really big) String and want to convert it to a (really big) value, the IO Box automatically displays a small float number with it’s exponents. When you convert that back to string you get a different string because of that.
(IOBoxString (i.E: 12345678901234567890) -> AsValue -> AsString (String is now: 1.234567890123457E0019)
I think the patch explains it better than I did :-)
so my question is: is this working as intended? If so, is there a workaround?
