...? No, I mean given a big number, such as
10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00, convert it into
scientific notation.
It's the same.
print "%e" % 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00
1.000000e+51
one would have assumed that someone who *prefers* to use scientific notation
for large numbers would in fact know that, but the usenet never ceases to sur-
prise me...
