When using multiple pipe commands on same input of big numbers with many digits, how does this impact the precision of numbers. Do they get truncated. Note that I said multiple times as input is used and then re-used. Assuming that the functions used for input do not impact the precision of numbers, does "pipe |" impact it ?
Also, my assumption of functions performing action on input of large numbers with many digits, is incorrect. If functions include awk then my assumption is incorrect, what about 'sed'.
