Then I would suggest to update both the help and the documentation to reflect this: ? ?bernreal bernreal(x): Bernoulli number B_x, as a real number with the current precision. ? ??bernreal bernreal(x): Bernoulli number B_x, as bernfrac, but B_x is returned as a real number (with the current precision). The library syntax is bernreal(x,prec). Cheers, Bill.
