|Swedish term or phrase: flyttal|
|In a software program for computer programmers:|
"Attribut har en typ som antingen kan vara en typad med sådant som heltal, flyttal och sträng eller med en egendefinierad klass exempelvis datum eller personnummer."
|floating point numbers|
A term used in the computer science to describe a number which is partly defined by a whole number (say 5) and partly by an exponent (say 2 to the power of 3). The "flyttal" would in this trivial case be 5*2**3=5*8=40. The floating point numbers are in reality only used for VERY large or VERY small numbers (which otherwise could not be hanled by the computer).

Note that "floating point" should be sufficient in the translated text.
