Please somewhat disregard my previous reply <g>, the restrictions on the LENGTH of RealDigits' results are actually not greater than 16 before "Indeterminate" status results are returned. In the "extreme" case of using such a value as 10^9, I gets ===> General::ovfl: Overflow occurred in computation. >> No more memory available. Mathematica kernel has shut down. Try quitting other applications and then retry. <=== Benjamin Tubb On Mar 15, 3:12=A0am, Sebastian Meznaric <mezna... at gmail.com> wrote: > Try this in Mathematica > RealDigits[\[Pi], 10, 3, -10^9] > > The answer you get: > RealDigits::realx: The value \[Pi] is not a real number. >> > > I am using 6.0.0.
