Both online and command line versions of Troll give me the same bug: there is no discernible difference between the "/" and "mod" operators.

a) 123 mod 10 = 12
b) 123 / 10 = 12

Shouldn't a) = 3 ?  - or at least b) = 12.3 ?

PS - Suggestion: Please consider implementing the "%" shorthand for "mod"?

\ Found a workaround for now, demonstrated below (tends to error out with 10 digit numbers, but I can live with that)...

function modd(x,y)=

ab:=call modd(a,b);

'a ||"mod "||'b ||"="||'ab

That is, indeed, a bug in the "make random rolls" part of the program.  Adding mod to that part was so trivial that I didn't really test it.  Which I obviously should have, since I forgot to change "div" to "mod" in the copy-pasted code.  The "calculate probabilities" part seems to be O.K.

In any case, it is fixed now.
