Subject decimal / numeric
Author Peter Faulks

Are there any differences at all between a decimal and numeric type?

The langref.pdf (page 19) describes them identically but separately. I
would have thought that if they were the same then it would make more
sense to say 'same as decimal' for the numeric type. (or 'same as numeric'
for the the decimal type).

Anybody know a good (free?) c++ class library that handles fixed scale
decimal types?
