( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

For the record, although developed independently my version at Re: Split range 0 to M into N non-overlapping (roughly equal) ranges. has the same sort of bug, triggered by at least one of the same input pairs. I guess when two people hit the same flaw, we at least know we're close to the right solution.

Since the fix is already discussed for JavaFan's map version, I'm sure the translation of that fix to the for loop can be left as an exercise. Personally, my fix would probably be to pull in bignum, which works well since it's a rounding error.

Broken:

It's maybe slower than fudging, but I have more faith in it. It's easy enough to add a line at the top of the program to let someone else deal with the intricacies since this isn't going to be the resource-hungry part of your code anyway.
