    Re: Proof-reading the OCR of Cotter's "History..."

    Hello Tony

    The sense I get is:

    L(+/-)D means the result can be L+D and L-D

    L~D means (L-D) or (D-L) whichever results in a positive number.

    And therefore

    L (+/~) D means the result can be L+D and { (L-D) or (D-L) whichever results in a positive number }

    Hello.

    Here is the full zoo of "strange" operators: the tilda, the plus-above-the-tilda, the plus-minus.

    Need help understanding them.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,

    Tony
