i'm writing a little internet shop in php.
i found really bad bug, which can make a lot of losses to somebody...

may be i'm using cast not good way, but i call this bug anyway.

consider this script:

$price = 33.44;

echo "the price is: $price <BR>";

$price_dolars = floor($price);

echo "number of cents is: " . ($price - $price_dolars)*100 . "<BR>";
// we can see value of 44

echo "but as integer it would be: " . (int)(($price - $price_dolars)*100) . "<BR>";
// but now it is 43

Or to give a shorter example:


$test = (1.2 - 1) * 10;

echo var_dump($test);
echo var_dump((int)$test);


which outputs:


This only happens when a subtraction is made. when (1.2 - 1) is replaced by 0.2, this feature doesn't show up. 

Either I really overlooked something or this is a bug.

Anyway, I suggest you to calculate only with cents - which also allows easier calculating. Formatting can be done later.

  $price = 3340;

then use number_format() to format.

Kind Regards,
