Re: Mathlink problem with number format


Hello together,

thank you for your help.

Using your tip with the InputForm[] everything seemed to work well until I
encountered the following problem:

Normally the command:
    NSolve[3*x==30,x]
would give as result:
    {{x->10.0000000000}}
but with a following:
     InputForm[%]
I get as output:
    {{x-> 9.999999999999999999999999999999969`15.6464}}

which confuses me quite a lot.

Any Ideas ?
