accuracy problems

HY to all!

I've a very strange problem: I'm running IDL 5.2.1 on a Pentium III 500 with
Windows NT. When I read data from a file into a variable, IDL always makes a
truncation. Even when I type it at the IDL prompt.
For example:

IDL> a=2.83456
IDL> print, a

IDL prints :  2.00000

Its equal if I define the variable as float or double, the result is always
the same.

Does anyone have a idea how this can happen,
