MOD function does not work! So be warned!

>It is not the loop, it is addition.

Dar, et al:

I think there's more to it than that:


on testMod
   put 249 into var1
   put var1 into var2
   add 1.0 to var1
   repeat 10
     add 0.1 to var2
   end repeat
   put (var1=var2)&&((var1 mod 5)=(var2 mod 5))
end testMod

The first test always resolves to true...only the second test yields 
a false result.
