float-cmp defines traits for approximate comparison of floating point types which have fallen
away from exact equality due to the limited precision available within floating point
representations. Implementations of these traits are provided for
Two methods of comparison are provided. The first,
two comparands equal if the count of floating point representations between them is
below a specified bound. This works well in most cases.
The second method of comparison,
ApproxEqRatio, considers two comparands equal if the ratio of
the difference between them to the larger is below some specified bound. This handles many of
the cases that the former type of comparison doesn't handle well.
