(%i1) ( fpprec:100, [fpprec, 1.123456890123456890123456890b0] );
(%o1) [100, 1.123456890123457b0]
(%i2) ( ibase:2, [ibase, 11111111] );
(%o2) [2, 11111111]
This shows me that in a first step the complete expression is read and parsed and in a
second step the expressions are evaluated from left to right.
Is it generally possible, that expressions like fpprec:100 can have an influence on the parser
inside of the same expression, or can it only have effect on the next read in expression?
