Description Tim Mills 2016-07-29 15:49:18 UTC
Following the rules in " Formatting the Year Component",

(1) If the width modifier is NOT present and,
(2) the first presentation modifier DOES NOT take the form of a decimal-digit pattern

then what is the value of N?
Comment 1 Michael Kay 2016-09-06 14:42:24 UTC
I think it should be infinity.

(Assuming N mod infinity is N... I should have paid more attention in maths classes.)
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2016-09-06 15:38:11 UTC
Agreed that in this case the value is not truncated.
Comment 3 Michael Kay 2016-09-06 20:35:57 UTC
This change has been applied to the spec.
