 isFloat and isInt functions
 Sat, Oct 30 2021 4:28 PM Permanent Link Richard Harding Wise Nutrition Coaching The isFloat and isInt functions returns incorrect results. isInt(‘0a’) = true isFloat(0.0a’) = true The example in the documentation, (X := IsInt('10.20');  // X is False), also returns true.

Yes - I know the reason why this happens. For normal people, '0a' is not an integer and '0.0a' is not a float. It makes the functions unusable when validating input.

I think what it tells you is only that StrToInt will return an integer answer without raising an exception, but possibly not the right one as you showed.  Not necessarily a useful result.
