Should we be attempting to reply to root@ROCKY8-5-WL.localdomain ?

I'm not going to bother.

  | [root@ROCKY8-5-02 ~]#echo $[23**15]
  | 8380818432457522983

In addition to what Chet & Greg said:

jacaranda$ echo '(23^15) % (2^64)' | bc

So, given the 64 bit limitation the answer is quite good...


ps: Isn't $[ supposed to be obsolete?
