The code I'm looking at uses a golang float64 as a counter, does this pose a problem with loss of accuracy at some point? Specifically, are all integers represented in the range covered by float64? If not, where do I start running into problems? When do I run out of contiguous integers?
In case you're wondering, the reason for using a float64 as a counter is because it's part of a float64 that holds many metrics that are not integers.
