# Talk:Negative base numbers

From Rosetta Code

## possible additional numbers to be used[edit]

Perhaps a negative number (such as -15) to base -10, and also zero (to any negative base) could/should be added to the numbers being converted to test the logic of the various programming entries. -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 05:13, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

## possible extra credit option[edit]

Since a few programming examples have shown the name of the language (being) used as a value (possibly in base -62), why not add an extra credit to show the language name (as best as it can expressed) for some *particular* value? (See the last example for the version 2 REXX entry.) -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 07:46, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

- It's your entry, but I'll add the extra credit thingy if you want. -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 08:27, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

- I've added the extra credit task requirement of showing the computer language's name to be expressed. -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 22:27, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
