ikkalkul's only data type is the signed fixed-point

fractional number, i.e. a number between (but not including) -1 and 1. Dealings with the Real World that require numbers outside that range are done with functions that notionally map that range to a larger range (e.g., -16383 to -16383) and back. Kvikkalkul had a probabilistic jump operator which, if given a negative probability, would act like a COME FROM. This was, sadly, deleted in later versions of the language.
