Don't compare floating points. Ever. Now you see why.
Also, don't write loops that calculate a floating point number which
is then tested for equality to exit the loop. Also, it is a bad idea
to test for > or < for exiting unless you know in advance an
accidental equality result will not yield surprising results. In other
other words, don't do that (test for > or <) either.
