View Full Version : What's da difference between a float and a double

They seem the same to me. Is there anyway I can round floats to integers. And where can I get layer FX tutorials or posts. That's all

floats have a higher number range than doubles.

Double is short for double precision integer.
A float has a mantissa and an exponent.
eg. (a decimal float, computers use binary ones of course)
1.0533556 * 10^5

The point of having different types of integer variables, is to use as little memory as possible. A float will use the memory space of a float, even if you keep values there eg 1-9.
Some languages have types from 1-32bit storage... meaning there are a lot more types than anyone cares for.. I usually use Integer for whole numbers and float for floating point numbers.. the whole idea about this is memory usage all the way.

Not directly, but you could use FloatToString and then StringToInteger or:
float f = whatever,004;
int i = f;

Here is a double

And this is a floating

The same as mine, just a question of time after the "meal" (if you dare to call meal the fact of swallowing a Mc Do chit )
