Re lossy data transformations, apparently you, Jens,
and I are the only ones around here who are interested.
Maybe the others are mainly interested in program
structural issues. I may repost in the general or a
database forum.
Well, it is not related to OOD. But unfortunately too few people are
interested in it. Questions like "Frac fails for large numbers" (posted
to b.p.d.l.d.general today) are asked quite frequently. Using number
data types correctly is very important. And not simple if you don't know
what's happening behind the scenes. So a) programmers should care about
it and b) the language should support the programmer as good as possible.
