Description:
------------
When I try to fetch a numeric (18,0) value in php 4.2.3 I get correct values. After upgrade to php 4.3.4 I get  converted numbers.

On the older Version i Recieved e.g.:

1150000000002401

on the new version i get this:

1.1500000000024E+15

It seems like a old php bug - but i have the newest PHP Version running 
Sybase is ASE 12.5 on RedhatLinux. Apache is 1.3.29

Floating point values have a limited precision. Hence a value might 
not have the same string representation after any processing. That also
includes writing a floating point value in your script and directly 
printing it without any mathematical operations.
 
Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The two numbers 1150000000002401 and 1.1500000000024E+15 are the exact same number on your machine.
