type (hooray), which is internally represented by a 64-bit IEEE float (erm, ok)
unless you're doing bitwise operations, in which case it's:
- violently coerced to a 32-bit signed integer in JS <= 1.1 (NaN if out of
- silently coerced to a 32-bit signed integer in JS > 1.1 (truncated
fractional and high bits)
What have we done to deserve this?
(Disclaimer: I haven't been bitten by this design decision of doom, because I
