Better avoid decimal fractions!

They can't always be transformed loss-free to binary fractions (see Re: eq vs ==)

But this works:

DB<107> $x=95*806 /100; => "765.7" DB<108> $y=13*589 /10; => "765.7" DB<109> $x <=> $y => 0

So just calculate with integers and shift the decimal point afterwards!

The deeper reason for this mess is that Humans have too many fingers ;-)
