While working on the pljava support for PostGIS, I read
stumbled across the following problem:
It says that the bbox coordinates are 16-bit floats, and the real
geometry coordinates are 32-bit floats.
AFAICS from the code, the bbox coordinates are 32-bit floats (IEEE
single precision on most current platforms), and the geometry
coordinates are 64-bit floats (C-Type double, IEEE double precision on
most current platforms).
Strk, do you agree that this is da documentation mistake? If yes, I'll
commit a fix.
