Talk:Negative base numbers

From Rosetta Code

possible additional numbers to be used

Perhaps a negative number (such as   -15)   to base   -10,   and also zero  (to any negative base)   could/should be added to the numbers being converted to test the logic of the various programming entries.   -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 05:13, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

possible extra credit option

Since a few programming examples have shown the name of the language (being) used as a value   (possibly in base   -62),   why not add an extra credit to show the language name (as best as it can expressed)   for some   particular   value?     (See the last example for the version 2 REXX entry.)   -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 07:46, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Good idea. Do you want to update the task description? --TimSC (talk) 08:23, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
It's your entry, but I'll add the extra credit thingy if you want.   -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 08:27, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
I've added the extra credit task requirement of showing the computer language's name to be expressed.   -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 22:27, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
