The word "contatenation" in line 5 should be "concatenation", I'm correcting it now. Hopefully, I spell the word right. :^) -- 05:21, 16 August 2006 (UTC)Reply

How to improve references in "Carry flag vs. borrow flag" edit

@Perey: tagged § Carry flag vs. borrow flag with {{refimprove}}, but I'm not positive what's being asked for. The fact that "borrow" is more commonly associated with one convention and "carry" with another is something of a WP:SYNTHESIS, but it's just finding lots of architectures and counting them, which I think falls under WP:CALC.

Slightly more broadly, describing which of several opinions is more widely held is an essential part of a Wikipedia editor's job; that's assessing WP:DUE weight. I admit to having a POV that I wish there were some consistent terminology, but I don't think saying "this appears to be the most common" is pushing it too hard.

Simply sourcing the assertions on an architecture-by-architecture basis is possible, but seems like make-work, and WP:OVERCITE. They're obviously individually WP:VERIFIABLE; is anyone seriously challenging those specifics?

Or is the request for some higher-level issue? Just trying to understand. (talk) 17:45, 12 December 2016 (UTC)Reply
