Hi,

I try to declare a float variable as follows:
var workload : Float = 0.0;
I get the following error message:
Type 'Float' not found

Hi Hallvard,

EOL defines four primitive types: Boolean, String, Integer and Real. The latter should be used for representing floating point numbers.

There's some more information about EOL's types in Section 3.3 of the Epsilon book, here: http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/epsilon/doc/book

Cheers,
Louis.

OK. It's confusing that the 'Float' literal is colored green, so it
looks like it's recognized as a valid type.

Hi Hallvard,

Yes, I can see why the syntax highlighting of Float and Double would be confusing! I've opened the following bug to cover this, and will fix the syntax highlighting now:

Thanks for reporting this.

Cheers,
Louis.
