    Question Doubles Problem

    Hi, im using MinGW with Code::Blocks and i'm running into a problem with Doubles...

    If i declare two variables:

    float a;
    double b;

    and set them both to hold a large value like 145.232213000

    I then use %f to print out the numbers and i get 145.2322 on BOTH of them... This would be understandable with floats but aren't doubles suppose to hold more information?

    See: printf type specifiers.Additionally, for numerical literals, a suffix of f for floating point and nothing for double.
