remember: ancient Klingon numbers only had the digits 1,2,3 and no ZERO. The number NINE is not "30" (3x3 + 0), but 23 (2x3 + 3x1). (This example will perform (5 x 5) + 11 in Klingon. Before doing the addition, the "see" command will show the stack in base ten. The final "." displays the result, "popping" the top of the stack for display.)
