Implicit Conversions in GLSL

From

Cover of OpenGL Programming Guide: The Official Guide to Learning OpenGL, Version 4.3, Eighth Edition

Note

Implicit conversion is only for numeric types: narrower to broader, whereby no precision loss can occur, (although slight inaccuracy might arise from int -> IEE 754 if int cannot be exactly represented)
