#186716 - Insufficient justification
Responding to: ???'s previous message
Jeremy Vella said:
float is needed because of the multiplication to achieve the angle.

It is perfectly possible to multiply integers!

What is it about this particular multiplication that makes you think it "needs" float?

As already noted, with a little thought, it is generally possible to use integers instead - and save the poor little 8051 a great deal of unnecessary work!
