    Question "Floating Point : Overflow" ??

    My program runs and compiles perfectly fine on Visual C++, but when i test it on Turbo 4.52 (coz school is gonna use that to test the program)

    ... it runs and compiles but when I type a float it gave me that error message.

    "program.exe Floating Point: Overflow" then exits.

    Okay Should I b worrying ? Does it have anything to do with the executable part of my program, my computer? or the compiler?

    1)visual c++ is a windows compiler and turbo is a console compiler
    2) probably depending on the bits of the compiler they have different ranges..like a int in visual c++ is 4 bytes (goes up to 2.1 billion) but it might not be same for other compilers because in older compilers i think an int was 2 bytes....so probably you need to change it to double?
