Package: rpncalc
Version: 1.34
Severity: normal

When I compute '23 !' (factorial), the result returned was incorrect.
Here is a transcript:

mickey@bunny:~$ rpncalc

22 !

23 !
 2: 1124000727777607680000
 1: 25852016738884978212864

The result must be '25852016738884976640000'.

I think it's a problem with the C double precision.

So, it could be a good idea, if the fix is not easy to do,
to report this error to the user by an Overflow message for example.

Best regards.
