Comparing Real Numbers

Comparing whether or not two real numbers are identical is problematic due to rounding errors. See the below C++ example for an illustration:

// { autofold
#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>
using namespace std;
// }
int main() {
cout << (sqrt(3) * sqrt(3) - 3) << endl
<< (sqrt(3) * sqrt(3) == 3) << endl
