Precision

Is the Precision class machine dependent at all?

No, it is not right now, since the .Net numeric type precision is not supposed to be machine dependent (assuming IEEE754 binary64, even though CPU registers may have higher precision. In memory, a double is always 64 bit wide, on both x86 and x64 platforms).

Do you have a scenario where this is an invalid assumption and causes you problems?

Thanks,
Christoph

Not really, I am just curious.
