RT = range type, and DT = data type. That's what I meant by "sort of" for the floats. When I was able to do my math with ints it worked great but when I had to switch to doubles that's the closest I got. Bounding the floating point value against integral limits.

O.K. I'll clean mine up too. I also want to look at what Cromwell & Peder are working on. I really like the idea of performing as much of the math as possible at compile time. There-in lies part of the tricky bit though, if it can't be resolved at compile time it needs to revert to a run-time operation.
