hi,
I was going through the wikipedia

Is it possible that the amount of information that the knowledge of a
sub-threshold number of Shamir fragments leaks in finite precision setting
depends on the finite precision implementation?
For example, if you know 2 of a 3 of 5 splitting and you also know that
