pd's type for a numeric value is "t_float" (which is usually a 32bit 
pd's type for sample values is "t_sample" (which is usually a 32bit "float")

see m_pd.h for more information.


PS: if some object or another "internally" (this is: within the object's 
personal world) uses "double" (or "struct arrayscheiss") is not to be 
confused with what pd (as interpreter) uses "internally" (this is: for 
communication between several objects.)

PPS: if only objects (externals/internals) would use "t_float" and esp. 
"t_sample" throughout...
