Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OFFICE-2325) Negative andnon-integer inputs for BASE and DECIMAL Functions

Negative and non-integer inputs for BASE and DECIMAL Functions

                 Key: OFFICE-2325
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2325
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: OpenFormula
            Reporter: Eric Patterson

are negative values allowed for BASE and DECIMAL Fucntions?
If negatives are allowed are they denoted simply by a leading minus sign?

The spec seems to allow non-integer inputs, is this correct?  If so how should we handle cases like BASE(0.5,3) as 0.5 is not finitely representable in base 3, and since we're returning a string we could (at least theoretically) go on forever?
