float arithmetic

I am trying to do float arithmetic for dollar amounts. The sum is not precise to the two decimal places of cents. It gets rounded up and the final total is different from the actual total by a few cents or a couple of dollars! Has anyone used float for accumulating totals precise to the two decimal places?
