gawk: FP Math Caution

 15.4 Floating-Point Arithmetic: Caveat Emptor!
      Math class is tough!
                    -- _Teen Talk Barbie, July 1992_
    This minor node provides a high-level overview of the issues involved
 when doing lots of floating-point arithmetic.(1)  The discussion applies
 to both hardware and arbitrary-precision floating-point arithmetic.
      CAUTION: The material here is purposely general.  If you need to do
      serious computer arithmetic, you should do some research first, and
      not rely just on what we tell you.
