Issue #1336 has been updated by Roger Pack.


>> * numeric.c (flo_to_s): keeps enough precision for round trip.

One possibility would be to allow Float#to_s to still be (depending on how you look at it) "friendly" or "imprecise."

And keep the precise version for Float#inspect.

The benefit of having them both verbose is that (tongue in cheek) it makes floats hideously ugly which might encourage people to avoid them :)

But having both available separately via #inspect and #to_s would be nice and I'd imagine a patch to that effect would be well received.

A discussion on it can be read at http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/179361

Cheers.
