Hi Barend.
Yes, of course you're right that fractional differences certainly aren't
duplicates. I'm sorry I implied otherwise.
Having swapped over some time ago to using integers in my Clipper
library, and now being so used to scaling fractional coordinates into
integers to manage precision, I'd made the presumption that fractional
values in these specific tests was unnecessary precision. I now accept
that some might consider otherwise. Also, I can see now that some of my
comments may have seemed critical of Ggl and Gtl, and for that I
apologize. I really do believe each library has it's strengths and
