#- Correction for precision: all Decimal operations in a thread use the
#- same context until the context is changed. Threads inherit
#- context from
#- their starting thread (I think).
I'm lost. Help me with an example (that later I'll shamelessly stole to use
in a test case):
d1 = Decimal('123')
d2 = Decimal('456')
So, long, they have the same context, right?
getcontext().prec = 46
The precision should change for both d1 and d2, right?
d3 = Decimal('789')
d3 also has the precision in 46, right?
