Go provides two sizes of floating-point numbers,
Their arithmetic properties are governed by the IEEE 754 standard
implemented by all modern CPUs.
Values of these numeric types range from tiny to huge.
The limits of floating-point values can be found in the
math.MaxFloat32, the largest
math.MaxFloat64 is about
positive values are near
float32 provides approximately six decimal digits of precision, whereas
float64 provides about 15 digits;
float64 should be preferred for
most purposes because
float32 computations accumulate error rapidly unless one is quite careful, and ...
