Well, I think extremely is a little bit exagerated. As of my
knowning, with floats we have a resolution of +/- 8 Million,
which are 7 decimal digits in the mantissa. (Well not the full range
of 7 digits). Pd truncates numbers to six digits, although it could
do 7 in most cases.
Corrections welcome if I'm wrong ...

Hmm, well for tabwrite~, tabread~ there is a set function, at least
in the newest version, others I don't know, prob. should be added
there too ?
