[Haskell-cafe] Fortran mixed mode arithmetic expressions ->

I guess I only accidentally got the right answer for c=....
For my r value of 60.0
*Main> truncate $ (+) (logBase 10.0 60.0) 10.0
and subtract 11 11 == 0
Thanks for correcting me.
Also missed that 11-10=1 simplification. Forest for the trees stuff.
Your translation's definitely an improvement.
I looked for an exponential operator and grabbed the first one I
found. In the Prelude (**) is under the heading Methods, while (^^)
is under the heading Numeric Functions. Reasoning?
There's a lot of "automatic" stuff going on in Fortan mixed mode expressions, like variables that begin with I-N being integers by default, and the rest being real by default, so it's probably safer to keep things explicit in the Haskell translations.

No, subtract 11 x is x-11, not 11-x.
let c = 10^^(11 - (truncate (logBase 10 r) + 10))
or, to make it a little simpler,
let c = 10^^(1 - truncate (logBase 10 r))
Prelude> :t (^^)
(^^) :: (Fractional a, Integral b) => a -> b -> a
That is probably faster and more accurate than (**).

In this case,
does the trick. In general, you have to use fromInteg[er/ral] and other conversion
let k = fromIntegral k1 - k2
