Hi all,

From the spec:

[Definition:]  The double datatype is patterned after corresponds to IEEE
double-precision 64-bit floating point type [IEEE 754-1985]. The basic
value space of double consists of the values m  2^e, where m is an integer
whose absolute value is less than 2^53, and e is an integer between -1075
and 970, inclusive. ...

It seems to me that "e" should be an integer between -1074 and 971,
inclusive.

Thanks,
