What operations are you doing on the numbers?

I read earlier that Richard reimplemented the division algorithm based
on Knuth's algoithm. However, the division algorithm in TAOCP Vol 2,
sec 4.3.1 has at least one bug (and I have a $2.56 check ;-). So, if it
is anything to do with division, I guess Richard should look at which
printing he used to get the algorithm, and also look at the errata
( to make sure he
has a correct definition of the algorithm, and a correct implementation.
