Hi,
There's some weird numeric issue with the version above that I'm using.
I get FALSE for 0.06 + 0.01 == 0.07 but TRUE for 0.02 + 0.05 == 0.07.
Also, I get FALSE for 0.7 %in% seq(0.1, 1, 0.1). And I get the following:

I am not the only one having this; my coworker sees the same issue with his rstudio.
Can someone please tell me what I'm missing here? Or is this a bug?

Comparing floating numbers can be tricky when one is not aware of the following:

The only numbers that can be represented exactly in R’s numeric type are integers and fractions whose denominator is a power of 2. All other numbers are internally rounded to (typically) 53 binary digits accuracy. As a result, two floating point numbers will not reliably be equal unless they have been computed by the same algorithm, and not always even then [..] The function all.equal() compares two objects using a numeric tolerance of .Machine$double.eps ^ 0.5 . If you want much greater accuracy than this you will need to consider error propagation carefully.

Thank you. That makes it clear. I did think the issue is too shallow to remain as an unfixed bug till today.
Then I guess the solution is to use some other condition in if statement.
