Hi Luke. I hope I didn't call my library "more correct" than the others,
as that is evidently not the case. However, I was stating that Clipper
was returning a simpler (while still correct) solution.

ISTM Ggl doesn't round, but otherwise - yes, fractions *may be* more
accurate, though Is Ggl still vulnerable to floating point imprecision
(see )?
