 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 ?
