### AlmostEqual - rounding error insensitive comparison

Math functions
(AFL 2.80)

 SYNTAX AlmostEqual( x, y, ulps = 5 ) RETURNS NUMBERARRAY FUNCTION This is a helper function for comparing floating point numbers. It returns True if x and y are equal or almost equal upto defined accurracy (ulps). It is recommended to use this function instead of equality check (==) as it leads to more reliable comparisons and less headache caused by IEEE floating pointacurracy issues. Parameters: x, y - the numbers or arrays to be compared, ulps stands for "units in last place" and represents maximum relative error of the comparison. Since 32 bit IEEE floating point numbers have accurracy of 7 significant digits, 1 unit in last place(ulp) represents relative error of 0.00001 %. The default value of ulps parameter is 5 which gives roughtly 0.00005% "comparison sensitivity". Thanks to Bruce Dawson for his fast routine. EXAMPLE ```if( 1/3 == 0.3333333 ) {   printf("32-bit Floating point IEEE exact equality\n"); } if( AlmostEqual( 1/3, 0.3333333 ) ) {   printf("Numbers are almost equal\n"); }``` SEE ALSO
