Subject Float versus Double
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 21:53:49 GMT


I changed all my doubles to float expecting a smaller database, but the size
was identical.

I thought doubles were 8 bytes and floats only 4 bytes. I have over a
million records in the database, with several doubles per record. I created
a completely new database, identical in every respect, except all doubles
were changed to floats and reimported the data.

Can anyone explain why the database size was exactly the same?
