c++ int to float back to int conversion

thanks for the heads up cuch.i did come across this before. For what I'm doing if what dave Angel says is correct (and it make alot of sense) then it would be enough. This particular boost library would seem to be overkill for what I want.

c++ int to float back to int conversion

Thanks Dave Angel. I will check the GCC documentaion to see if it would use this method. There appears to be no problem with any of the integer values I have tried this code with, so I think your right.
