ceil() does not give an correct expected result.
I have read some bug reports before. I understand that there is floating point error, but it happens in just a simple math calculation, which is unacceptable in the below case. It created inaccurate result on simple math, it will also create chaos in more complicated ones.

Reproduce code:
$n = 100.0*1.1;
print $n.'='.ceil($n);

Expected result:
110 = 110

Actual result:
110 = 111

Please try with PHP 5.3.0 where the rounding was revised per this RFC:

Sorry to disturb. Got the idea that it is the definition from IEEE, the limitation of float in binary representation. Thanks for concern!
