Re: rounding errors
Thanx alot to all of you,
this discussion has been very interesting and fruitful.
I had completely forgotten about human vs computer predjudice
And, to add insult to injury, I forgot my own teaching that
"a computer is a dumb device. It does what you tell it, not
what you expect it to do".
Hm, just shows that one shouldn't spent 8h in a row at the
computer and then skip a nights sleep...
Special thanks to JD and Liam for the links, they make an
interesting reading, and William: should have thought of
looking at the binary and hex representation myself...
