Summary:  Uhm. Bizarre math lingo in definition of integers and floats. 
 
Hi folks. In the datatype definition section in the ColdC reference
manual, you say something like: A float is a real number (in mathematical terms). and An integer is a rational number (in mathematical terms). This is not strictly false, but very confusing. Computer floats and integers are both small subsets of the rational numbers. Integers are just integers, and floats approximate reals. I wouldn't drag rational numbers into it at all. :) Cheers!
