float_epsilon

# Miscellaneous¶↑

float_epsilon
Syntax:
float_epsilon = 1e-11
Description:

The default value is 1e-11

Allows somewhat safer logical comparisons and integer truncation for floating point numbers. Most comparisons are treated as true if they are within float_epsilon of being true. eg.

for (i = 0; i < 1; i += .1) {
print i, int(10*i)
}
float_epsilon = 0
// two bugs due to roundoff
for (i = 0; i < 1; i += .1) {
print i, int(10*i)
}


Warning

I certainly haven’t gotten every floating comparison in the program to use float_epsilon but I have most of them including all interpreter logical operations, int, array indices, and Vector logic methods.
