Increasing the precision of float on python
I'm using ubuntu 11.10 with python 2.7
In my application I require very precise floating point numbers. The current precision is too less for me to get any meaningful results.
I heard that the precision could be changed by making requisite changes in the linux software.
Is it doable? If so could anyone help me with that?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S: I'm using gcc version 4.6.1 if that helps.
