OK  Sorry I have chosen a poor example 
I should have stuck to pi throughout!
but I hope the review can concentrate on what emerged previously
as the _really_ tricky issue of how to _present_ the values in C++,
before we tackle the much easier,
(if still contentious) issue of individual names of constants.

 This is the EulerMascheroni Constant
 (http://mathworld.wolfram.com/EulerMascheroniConstant.html),
and is denoted
by a gamma or as C:
const float C = 0.5772156649015328606065120900824024310422F; //
EulerMascheroni constant
>I would have expected e to be 2.71828...
So would I. The Euler constant has the value
e = 2.718281828459045235360287471352662497757...
