I have seen it more thann once, but today I resolved to better understand it.
The minimum signed value for a "float-ed" value in MySQL is documented as "-3.402823466E+38." What is the "E+38" thing?
I've seen this in Excel as well as in databases and I've always understood it to mean a large value, or a large number of decimal points, but I wanted to "know," hence my appeal to the experts.
What does "E+38" mean?
