float value object weight

Hello list, I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with this task.
I've been playing with it, but I can't quite seem to get one thing to work.
When I make an object weight out to the decimal, say 2.54 or something and
then save it to disk, it only saves to 2.00.  I've already modified the save
code to write out as a float variable, which ^^^^ is showing.  That also
seems to be the problem, however, since it should save as a 2.54 by the same
reasoning.  It rounds to 2 decimal places (%.2f), which may be the problem,
but I'm not sure.  I also modified the parse_object code to read the float
variable from the object file, but that isn't the problem either, because it
is only read upon boot-up, and the value rounds off on the save side of
business.  Anyway, I'm not sure which section of the code is the crime
section or I'd post it, but if anyone could help me figure this out, thanks
in advance.  I'm stumped.
