Chris Pine from Opera on ES4 decimals

Chris Pine, a great guy who works at Opera on their JS engine (and who once lived with Sid Meier, I was awestruck to learn) has written an article about the decimal arithmetic available in the proposed ES4 draft. Decimals are pretty handy for applications where you need to…well, you should just go read the article; he does a better job than I would. I only got to meet Chris once, at a fateful ECMA meeting last spring, but from reading even this one article I’m sure you’ll understand why I’d love to meet up with him again.

Also of interest to many will likely be this phrase: “JavaScript 2 (supported in future versions of Opera, but not right at the moment.)” Go Opera!
