           Summary: Compile-time floating-point calculations are sometimes
                    inconsistent
           Product: D
           Version: 0.167
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: digitalmars-com baysmith.com


The following code should print false before it exits.

import std.stdio;

void main() {
        const float STEP_SIZE = 0.2f;


        float j = 0.0f;
        while (j <= ( 1.0f / STEP_SIZE)) {
                j += 1.0f;
                writefln(j <= ( 1.0f / STEP_SIZE));
        }

}

This problem does not occur when:
1. the code is optimized
2. STEP_SIZE is not a const
3. STEP_SIZE is a real
