I still use Integers for 99% of my programming, and imply the decimal places with Tag Names like PSI_X100

Yes, well, my slide rule that my Dad gave me is over 22" long*, so if we are going to start unzipping and measuring ...
The point of the original post is that the program
WAS using INTEGERs in the multiplication, but the emulator apparently overrides that for 16bit INTEGERSs; with 32LONGs the results are correct.
