Description Anton Chechel 2007-11-13 14:44:51 UTC
At the moment with code

    private float f = .5;

editor provides 2 hints:
1. Cast .5 to float
2. Change type of f to double

New hint "Declare .5 as .5f" or something like that should be introduced. Moreover I think this is the most frequently
used case for developer so it should be placed at the top of provided hints.
