Here X = = Y will be true if | X-Y | < = | Y* 1E-7 | where | X-Y | means the absolute, or positive, value of X-Y. Note : it may not be immediately obvious that no value will ever be = = zero. If in the above eq...

I also got (another) free Raspberry Pi Zero W, with my other subscription. :D That's waiting for an micro SD card for the OS, also in the office. Cheers, Norm.
