in reply to The most useful form of typing is...

Too early in the morning to think about weak/static/dynamic typing. Also too long since my CS classes (about 20 months!). Perhaps using Perl means I don't care too much about typing. Or is that just stereotyping?

[pryrt]: 1nickt, sprintf "%.16e", $v will always give enough precision to see 1 ULP (the smallest fractional part) of a standard 64bit Perl NV*
[pryrt]: (*: for systems where $Config{nvsize}==8 )
[pryrt]: Thus, that's "enough precision" to tell the difference between 1.0 and 1.0+1ULP
