SPARC seems to think so

Looks more like a float to me.

I suppose it's a double. I'm foggy on doubles. Is there an IEEE standard?

The answer is no, it's not a double. That's way too precise.

SPARC is just being stupid.

But it's got just four decimal places!

The number-part is too long!

Well, I have to give you that. It probably thought it was on a SPARC.

Maybe I should edit that out.

You should also edit out the bit where you say four decimal places :)

Naw, that's just funny.
