Mod(1, -2) > %2 = Mod(1, 2) So you would prefer ffinit to output ? ffinit(-2,1) %1 = Mod(1, 2)*x maybe ? I don't know if it is really a bug, but it can be fixed of course. Cheers, Bill. PS: Please also note that the current CVS is rather buggy since two weeks (make bench fails) but this should not prevent you from testing it, of course !
