I wouldn't call it a propert to avoid confusion with PicoLisp `prop'erties.
I couldn't find `allbase'.
I had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebraic_data_type][Algebraic
DataTypes]]
in mind, just like fractions.
(= (Float B S E)
(* S (** B E)) )
``(314 E -2)'' looks like
[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_notation][Scientific
notation]].
And wouldn't cause an error in PicoLisp.
Current implementation of PicoLisp numbers is also a linked list:
[path "@doc64/structures"]. Too bad they can not be manipulated like any other
list. Base is (** 2 64).
[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quote_notation][Quote notation]]: If we allow
circular reference in the `Num' structure it will result in a subset of
rational numbers. Arithmetic Shift, `AS', will give the rest.
