Re: Keyword "float" is not good to identify numbers

There are two dimensions:

1. What reads best
2. What people are used to

I'd say that with sufficient familiarity of a term, it becomes easier to understand than something with an objectively better name. "float32, float64, f32, f64" is in use a lot, "real32, real64" isn't.

I have a weak spot for "real" out of nostalgia for Pascal, but I'd say I'm an exception.
