Subject: FACT/FACTDOUBLE with fractions



| TBD: Should we mandate that it compute INT() first? Excel 2002 computes
| the INT() of the parameter first, and then computes the factorial. It'd
| be more flexible if we allowed fractional values. This has been reworded
| to note that it's only REQUIRED to support integer parameters, and then
| permitting GAMMA() for fractional values.

For interoperability we should not allow fractionals. Opinions?

Btw, which applications do support GAMMA?


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
