Hi,
i want to parse a long float value.

document.write(parseFloat("9999999999999999"));
result = > 999999999999999


But if value is

document.write(parseFloat("99999999999999999"));

result = > 10000000000000000

is there any other way i can parse this long value ?


Thanks
Sreejith

You should be aware that floating-point numbers on computers are approximations, not exact values. This JDC Article has examples to illustrate the problem and a solution in Java.
