Description:
------------
 Modulus calculation not returning correct value as in the example. If I replace 1.001 with 1.002 it works correctly.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
$in = 1.001;
$in2 =  $in * 1000 ;
$decimal = $in2 % 10;
echo $decimal;  // Output 0 ( Wrong )

$in = 1001;
$decimal = $in % 10;
echo $decimal;  // Output 1 ( Correct )
?>

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.

If you would like to know more about "floats" and what IEEE
754 is, read this:

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
