I'm having trouble with IOSTREAM.
What is the problem ?
(I'm using DMC++ 8.20.)


----------------------------------
#include <stream.h>
void main()
{
	float a,b;
	a=1;
	b=0.05;
	cout << a << " - " << b << " = " <<  a-b << endl;
	b=0.005;
	cout << a << " - " << b << " = " <<  a-b << endl;
	b=0.0005;
	cout << a << " - " << b << " = " <<  a-b << endl;
}

-----------------------------------
C:\Temp>sc float.cpp
link float,,,user32+kernel32/noi;


C:\Temp>float
1 - 0.05 = 0.95
1 - 0.00499999 = 0.995 
     ~~~~~~~
1 - 0.0005 = 0.9995

Try using 'double' instead of 'float'!
You are using a 4 byte floating point and expect great
precision!?
