* sigh *

Where were you when I was trying to explain this to some of our developers? I'm testing software, and raised a big red flag when I saw some logic that compared float values for equality. The values were results of other computation, and I tried for days to explain to the developers that this logic was a bad idea. I was nowhere near as eloquent as your post. Thankfully I wasn't the only one who understood the problem, and one of my co-workers was able to put it in terms that the developers grokked.

Which is really odd if you think about it -- I thought this sort of thing was basic education for programmers. (All of the developers I'm referring to have at least BS degrees) But I digress. Thanks for your explanation.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
