Go suffers from this problem too. It uses an arbitrary number representation for constants only, which are computed at compile-time.

For example, the following code:

package main import "fmt" func main() { x := 14.4; y := 10.0; fmt.Printf("%.49f\n", x) fmt.Printf("%.49f\n", x+y-y) }
Outputs:
14.4000000000000003552713678800500929355621337890625 14.3999999999999985789145284797996282577514648437500
