Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1410) Formally define number support
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2012 12:10:59 GMT
Formally define number support

                 Key: COUCHDB-1410
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Robert Newson
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 1.3

The JSON spec has a very loose definition of Number. CouchDB, as a database, should have well-defined
and first class support for numbers (both integral and decimal). The precision of number support
should be formally specified as should the algorithm used to represent floating-point values,
especially where an approximation must be made in the conversion.
