Today is 11111

And it's my birthday, so I'm spending it in silicon valley, hopefully getting to Anchor Electronics and HSC to shop for my gifts later today. Did Fry's last night :)Oh, and I'm here speaking at a conference as well.Bob

negative on most modern byte designated architectures nor in most of the

And I believe that Euler's Identity is e^(i*Pi) 1 = 0 relating all of
the five fundamental mathematical constants. 0 Attachment

your value and or apply any field axioms. So, I guess what I'm trying to
understand is how 11111 and 111111 are equivalent. ;)

your value and or apply any field axioms. So, I guess what I'm trying to
understand is how 11111 and 111111 are equivalent. ;)Because you're still thinking in Flip Flops. There's no rule saying you can't use 5bits. Also, you don't need any hardware to use Binary math  paper works just fine  or to make this joke work ;)I think the term "Field Axiom" in number theory can be misconstrued  the word 'Field' doesn't elude to FlipFlops, thus, octal or hex coding. The origin is called Axioms whenever you postulate when using math.=Dan 0 Attachment

WRT BLISS. ;)

I don't understand where your FlipFlops comes into this nor have you

Twos Complement is not bound to any field, or number coding on whatever system. It's how you implement it in hardware.
The only rule (in shorthand) to get 2's Comp is simply
1. Invert Binary Number
2. Add 111/1/11: 11111 is 5bit binary math  and it's still 1
11/11/11: 111111 is 6bit binary math  and it's also 1The two have no logic, digital, or electronic system in common  its just math.

111(bin)+1(bin) is 1000(bin).
8 or 8???
2's comp is a contrivance and has nothing to do with implementation in
hardware.
So, what you're saying is that if I add enough to 'n' it will eventually
become negative? I don't remember the number line folding back. 0 Attachment

When one specifies a size, in this case 5bit >>and<< signed integers (namely 2's comp), your number range is limited from
(2^(n1)) to (2^(n1))1

Don't tell me, did you actually build an Full Adder >>and<< Subtractor Logic inside your ALU for class ??Two's Complement is the main reason you don't need extra hardware for Subtractor logic. You simply use Adder Logic only  even in Multipliers/Dividers. And so became the prevailing dominant method  among several reasons  over other signed integer notation, such as, Signed Magnitude, One's Comp, etc  beginning in the early 60's.
Even DEC knew that ;)=Dan

No shite sherlock but I don't have to treat that addition as producing

a negative. I'm perfectly happy, with my example, to continue counting
to 15 (1111) and then start it all over again. Of course, I'd generate
an OVERFLOW exception or set some overflow flag/status bit but I don't
necessarily have to. And, yes, I do understand digital logic... 1000
is not negative unless I intend to treat it as negative. Hence, it's a
contrivance.
