1.e reads as 10.0
2.3e reads as 2.29999998E+23
in general, A.Be reads as A.BeAB . This is weird!
(2.3.4) reads as (2.3 0.4)
(2.e.3) reads as (200.0 0.3)
Shouldn't these things give errors??
(Macsyma has some of the same peculiarities in lexical analysis,
but the parser picks up the problems. e.g. 2.3.4 gives "0.4 not
an infix operator")
