Representation of int


#1

It would be usefill that config options of the type int are printed in a non-scientific way.

E.g. print 2678400 in stead of 2.6784e+06, while techically the same value the first one is easier to process


#2

I believe we use the default YAML formatting, which ends up using scientific notation once it gets >1 Million. I probably agree that right at 1M it would be nicer to just see the digits. But I can understand that eventually, you start counting “how many digits is that” and scientific notation is actually easier to understand.

Is there a point where you would agree, or is it that you would always like to see the normal representation?

(I’m curious what values you’re setting that are in the 2.6M range).


#3

Is the number of seconds in 31 day’s. Some of the applications have these kind of counters so that is why I bumped into them.

And to be honest, I think representing a dns soa serial this way is even worse. (2019010101 is readable, but mangling is scientific makes it look like something else)
