Bug introduced in 3 or earlier, persisting through 12, fixed on Wolfram cloud only.
In Mathematica 9.0.0, when to display the input form of two numbers, I come across maybe a puny problem. In order to focus on the problem, I will put up a simplified version.
and the output is
The input form of
E is eaten by the
Pi one. Why would this happen? And if I add a semicolon to the later one, the input form of
E will show up.
And what's more, if I enter
StandardForm consecutively like this
Out//StandardForm= π E
E being placed in a separate cell without the
InputForm label. IMO, the output is made in the wrong sequence.
So my question is, what does
InputForm really do? Why does it "eat" the previous output?
