| If you dont want infinty, use DBL_MAX as limit.
| Inclusivity/exclusivity distinction doesnt make sense in a finite set. Which
| any practical implementation uses.

I'm not sure what you mean.  Are you saying that
  x <= DBL_MAX
is the same as
  x < DBL_MAX ?
I don't think that that is true.

| That is while in math you cant neccessarily change a
| x<5 to a x<=C (4.999... = 5) that problem cannot occur with floats or doubles.

I'm not sure what you mean.

It is likely that strtod("5") == strtod("4.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999")
This isn't guaranteed as far as I know.

Are you saying that it isn't easy to change a < to a <=?  I agree.
