So if we use 21-bit signed integer arithmetic in the usual way, then the largest negative number that can be represented is -1,048,576. (I think for Arneb and Halcyon Days that would be -1.048.576.)

Then if you subtract one from this maximum value, it overflows to +1,048,575 (or +1.048.575). Then by continuing to subtract one, eventually we will get back to zero.

How's that?
Be seeing you!

Um, I don't know. I have to find the code I wrote that does the arithmetic. I seem to have misplaced it.

Or we could use 32-bit arithmetic, and count down to -2,147,483,648 before overflowing to +2,147,483,647, and then down to zero.
