It's not even treating that as an integer. If you enter 999999999999999934463, it spits back 999999999999999900000. Above 999999999999999934463 it apparently rounds up, and goes into scientific notation mode.


10^21 - 2^16 - 1.

This is in what context? Javascript?


In the javascript console. Enter that number, it gets repeated back to you. Enter a number 1 bigger and it comes back with 1e21.

Note: In the interests of full disclosure, I'm passing this on - I have no way from here of doing the experiment for myself.
