Did you mean by that following corresponding absolute pitches,
or which other frequncies had you concrete in mind when
creating that particular one by the factor 59?
Hence i do agree with your's observation:

in deed, even that *.scl-file contained some unfixed bug.

Now -as far as i can see- those ratios appearto be correct:

Many thanks again for that repair.

when considering more evaluated digits,
as calculated by "Google"s arithmetics, which yields:
same question as for D~A?
Or what else could be the reason for the tiny
discrepancy amounting about tiny 1/10 Cents
inbetween ours calculations of the relative deviations
in the tempered 5ths flatnesses?
