#414 closed bug (fixed)

Overflow in echoing large numbers from coefficient rings

Reported by: dreyer Owned by: hannes
Priority: major Milestone: 3-1-5 and higher

Description (last modified by dreyer)

Hi! Large numbers from Z/2n are not printed correctly:

dreyer@lts035:x86_64-Linux> ./Singular
                     SINGULAR                                 /
 A Computer Algebra System for Polynomial Computations       /   version 3-1-4

> ring r=(integer,2,33),(dummy),lp;
> number num=number(2)^32;num;
> num/2;
> number(2)^31;

We can see from the last two commands that number stores the information (here 2^32) correctly. Just the output goes wrong (overflow?),

Even worse: Singular forgets "+" between terms in some case:

> ring r = (integer, 2, 49), (var_1, var_10), lp;
> poly p = 131072*(-536870912 * var_1  -1073741824 * var_10);
> p;

So the output pretends that var_10}} exists twice. Note that Singular 3-1-0 (Mar 2009) prints {{{-0*var_1-0*var_10 in this case. (But it already had problems with the output of large numbers).

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

output routine is fixed, I hope that this but is only an output problem

I can confirm that the fix also works for the real-world example, that motivated the ticket originally.
