# Float vs real

Pascal Cuoq - 9th Feb 2012For some reason, uses of `real`

to denote fixed-precision floating-point numbers (in languages such as FORTRAN) irritate me, but uses of `integer`

or `int`

to denote bounded integers do not. One notation isn't more accurate than the other, though.

Does anyone have an idea why that might be?
