  Here's a quiz.

          (If you know the correct answer,
          Pls don't post it for a few days.)

Are  integral  &  integer  cognates?

[ Incr x 0 ]
"Add nothing at all to the variable x (often useful for checking
whether an argument to a procedure is actually integral and
generating an error if it is not):"

  I bet this is a typo.

  i.e.  if X is 0.33 and you do [ Incr x 0 ]
          no error or exception is raised.
