I noticed that when I multiply two integer(4) quantities together,
the compiler does not allow the result to be integer(8).
So is there a way to FORCE the correct answer?
Z=x*y does not give correct results in MOST cases, unless x and y are small.
What can I do to MAKE SURE I will get the correct answer?
Notice that if x and y are each 31 bits, Z can be 62 bits, which will fit into a INTEGER(8) result.
Is there a way to force the compiler to look for an integer overflow?
