## Question about 'double' in Print.log

 106 rfb 2016.05.09 01:54   I got in the '.log' file with 'Print()' and on screen from 'Comment()', number with double like this: 6.807918429796922e+016. I got the value without the decimals with 'DoubleToStr(,1)' as: 680791842979692216.0. My problem, and because it's kind of unknown to me how that number is translated into the decimals, I was comparing further that number with other numbers but without the 'DoubleToStr()', and I expected to get some other numbers with bigger value, but nothing happened (note: Possible coincidence).Question: If compared that kind of numbers with '>' or '<', will be got the correct result during calculations? P.S. I don't know how to reproduce that similar numbers and to check what I ask.

 106 rfb 2016.05.09 03:07 #   GumRai: Show your code. Explain what you are expecting and what is the resultGumRai, it is a bit a longer file over 20k, I could attach it, but it will be of no use if I post it, it is kind of optimizer code script, and just once I got that number and with Only 1 pair-symbol, just 1 hour before. And it was as result in chain calculating, so hardly I believe it could be reproduced. I am just asking as an example in comparing :```void OnStart() { double sum_1 = 6.807918429796922e+016; double sum_2 = 16.807918429796922e+016; if(sum_1 < sum_2) Print("-- yes"); if(sum_1 > sum_2) Print("-- no"); if(sum_1 == sum_2) Print("-- why?"); } ```I did this in test script, but I don't know if such thing is correctly written. It prints 'yes', ie. correctly. But first time using to write this king of numbers in MQL4, so I don't know if the method of initializing that values like that is common method in mql4. Just that is my question.

 rfb: unknown to me how that number is translated into the decimals, The number, translated into decimal was 680791842979692216.0.
 106 rfb 2016.05.09 03:26 #   Hi WHRoeder, thank You. But what I am confused is: as the code example I wrote up, if those 2 double numbers are got while calculating (ie. not initialized like that), and compared further, will it give correct comparing result same as like those initialized? And also, I am not sure which number is bigger.. :(. By no computer logic 2-nd, but I am not sure in this case.Thanks.
