## Error Code M93## M[UMPS] by Example |

Approved for inclusion in a future M[UMPS] language standard.

This error code was reserved for the situation when the result of a mathematical operation yields a result that is too small (in absolute value) to be represented as a number.

Later it was decided to follow the practice of allowing such results to be represented as a zero value.

`Set N=1 For Set N=N/2 Quit:'N`

will eventually terminate when the value of `N` is small enough
that the next division by two will yield a zero value.
