Subject floating point strategy
Author Boris Schlüszler

What is the best way to save floating point values?

I had a column typed "FLOAT", which made peculiar values...
Now I changed it to NUMERIC, or DECIMAL respectively.
It looks like IBO handles those columns more reliable.

But I don't really trust any interfaces that work on floating point
Is the NUMERIC/DECIMAL interface to InterBase throuroughly tested and
Are there any known bugs and traps?
