This week's book giveaways are in the Refactoring and Agile forums. We're giving away four copies each of Re-engineering Legacy Software and Docker in Action and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Hi, I understand that dealing with floats is not an accurate science . But can I somehow specify that I need a correct precision upto 'n' digit after decimal point. How does 'rounding' work for floats? See the second example.
String s=5555.1234, Float.parseFloat(s)=5555.1235, Float.valueOf(s)=5555.1235 <===Note 5 at the end ?
String s=5555.6789, Float.parseFloat(s)=5555.6787, Float.valueOf(s)=5555.6787 <=== Note 7 at the end?
String s=5555.67898898098989797987987987987, Float.parseFloat(s)=5555.679, Float.valueOf(s)=5555.679 <== why only 3 digit at the end ?
I am using JDK1.5

Is there a reason you are using floats instead of doubles? Switching to doubles would fix this issue.
But it really is a weird one. I just tried parsing those strings to a double and the casting to a float, and the result was messed up again.
