I "proofed" this for readability and obvious errors and found nothing. Might consider changing "Reading Assignment" to "Suggested Reading". Might include more detailed definition of "littoral". Overall it looks like clean copy and ready to go to me. Mirwin 02:59, 6 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Well I looked at the first screen. All the stuff about byte sizes is very PC orientated! Depending on programming language and machine I could use a variety of representations. E.g. true binary (little or big endian), packed format (one decimal digit per nibble), BCD representations or large integer arithmetic such as is used by packages like Maple (which do have a programming language) etc.

Also floating point literals are mentioned but not defined in the the definition of an integer literal. --JeremyBoden 00:29, 19 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]
