RantFloat != Real Pin
harold aptroot22-Apr-13 3:16
memberharold aptroot22-Apr-13 3:16 
It's written everywhere there's talk of floats: floats store real numbers.

They do not. Or more accurately, they do, but the only reals numbers that can go in a float are also rationals. You can't put an irrational in a float (or even just any kind of rational).

Can't we all agree to stop lying about what a float does?

It's probably the most important cause of the crapload of questions of the form "I did something with floats, why did I get the wrong result?"
