Legacy Issue Number: 1068
Summary: Page 3-20 of CORBA 2.2:
A fixed-point literal has the apparent number of total and
fractional digits, except that leading an trailing zeros are
factored out, including non-significant zeros before the decimal
point. For example, 0123.450d is considered to be fixed<5,2> and
3000.00 is fixed<1,-3>.
Apart from the fact that 3000.00 is not a fixed point constant literal,
I"m confused about something else...
If 3000.00d is fixed<1,-3>, then 3000.0000d is also fixed<1,-3>.
These rules result in
3000.00d being fixed<1,-3>
3000.01d being fixed<6,2>
This doesn"t seem to make sense. If I bother to write the trailing zeros,
surely I have a reason, namely, that I mean to use that scale. In other words,
I think that
3000.00d should be fixed<6,2>
3000.0000d should be fixed<8,4>
Why are fractional trailing zeros thrown away but fractional trailing
