Some very brief research reveals that the word Trinary does not "exist," per se.

Some very brief research on my part reveals that the word "trinary" does exist :-)

It's in my Chambers Dictionary. It's in my Longman Dictionary of the English Language (which defines it as a synonym of "ternary"). And it's even in my Collins Robert French-English English-French Dictionary.

    Well, I gues that the 1913 edition of Webster's Unabrigded and the Free online dictionary of computing just aren't "in the know" ;)
