CORBA23 — Fixed point constant typo in 2.2

  • Key: CORBA23-172
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1066

  • Summary:

    Summary: Section 3.7.2 of CORBA 2.2 contains an error on page 3-20, last para:

    For example, 0123.450d is considered to be fixed<5.2> and
    3000.00 is fixed<1,-3>.

    This is in conflict with section 3.2.5 on page 3-9, last para:

    A fixed-point decimal literal consists of an integer part, a
    decimal point, a fraction part and d or D. [ ... ]
    Either the integer part of the fraction part (but not both)
    may be missing; the decimal point (but not the letter d (or D))
    may by missing.

    So, it seems that the "3000.00" on page 3-20 really should be
    "3000.00d" or "3000.00D".
