strange message problem

December 27, 2010 | 1:25 am

hi,

I had a strange problem today that I never noticed before, when I typed into a message box: a number such as (99.248) the message box did not like it and turned it into (99.248001), I was inside a patcher at the time.

when i get back to my main machine ,i shall have to try and reproduce the glitch and post the patch. maybe this is common knowledge?

Yes, it is common knowledge. Not so much a glitch as a limitation of 32 bit floating point representation.
