Hi friends,

Weird question out of curiosity. Does anyone know how does JVM handle float and the internal details for storing and doing arithmetic
Thanks in advance

Also see the Java Language Specification...
  • 4.2.3 Floating-Point Types, Formats, and Values
  • 4.2.4 Floating-Point Operations
  • And here's a user-friendly site on IEEE 754...
