Decimal numbers <double>

Decimal values are specified with a decimal point or alternatively, in exponential notation, with a lowercase ‘e’ (also referred to as scientific notation). The value range corresponds to integer numerals. If internal calculation uses the unit 0.1 µm, input values in mm are then provided with 4 digits after the decimal point.

Where negative numerals are preceded by "-", positive numerals do not require the prefix "+".

Examples of decimal numbers:

123.3456        0.6789        .6789        -345.56        +78.987

12e5               +2.5e6        -4e7         -523.6e-3
