'powf()') or does your compiler use right ones without the suffix?
I think in the current unpatched Lua, functions actually work with
double, and then scale down to storing as floats. Each system might be

LNUM_FLOAT Problematic. Math functions not ANSI C. Limited or no
support on Windows.
The only benefit I see is less memory consumption on
embedded devices (speedwise, not much difference with LNUM_DOUBLE
Is anyone actually using 'float' currently, and what
is the main reason you do?
We're using float. Precision is good enough for our purposes and it
saves memory, which also is important for us.
