Last Modified: 2007-11-15
precision and rounding and maybe other settings for float type needs to be adjusted

is enum what I should use?

I checked c++ in a nutshell by oreilly, but I can't seem to find any thing from it about enum.

how do I do this?

I don't figure out how enumerations can help you in this issue.

float value remains untouched. It is just a presentation matter.
