Hi all,

the -cumul- command (which computes the empirical 
cumulative distribution function) enforces float 
storage type for the generated variable (that is,
the storage type of the generated variable will 
always be float no matter what the default storage 
type is). This gives rise to precission problems 
in some applications.

Can someone explain me the rationale behind 
enforcing float storage type in this context?

Many thanks,
