More Floating Point Fun

by havoc

Miguel,
I’m not sure interested is the right word in the context of
that 94-page document. 😉 For years here is my mental model of floating point:

  1. To test numeric equality don’t use the == operator
  2. If I ever write any numeric code, learn a lot more

So recently I changed Havoc’s Floating Point Fact 1 to:

  1. Never use the == operator with floating point, it doesn’t even work
    bitwise

Hmm.
