**solved** integers and floats

Recommended Posts

Why can integers only hold a certain number, it's max number is
2147483647
from this point it is converted to a float.
What is the point of this, does it have somethign to do with float being used also for fractions, or is there another reason, why the developers of php choose to make it's max number, that specific number
And excuse me for saying htis
but what is jan 1 whatever year
i Have heard this everywhere with every program language, the "magical year" is january first, of some old long lost date, what does that have to do with.
