[PD] floating-point question

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with a patch doing some very simple math. The problem
is that float 0.1 represents as 0.0999985 in some cases.
I know this has to do with floating-point representation but sometimes this
lead to bigger errors.
Is there any way to fix this ? Changing the width of the number box doesn't
Thanks for any help and sorry if this has been discussed earlier.
