 If the problem were really accuracy, you could probably solve it by using a type such as double-double (giving approximately 32 decimal digits). I suspect, however, that the problem is of a different order. I suggest that you look at W. Kahan's article Miscalculating Area and Angles of a Needle-like Triangle and at S. Boldo's article How to Compute the Area of a Triangle: A Formal Revisit. These may give you some pointers regarding the numerical issues involved in this sort of calculation. Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows. -- 6079 Smith W.
