Quick query.

in the following code;

Code :
float4 VertexInterp(isolevel, p1, p2, valp1, valp2)
double isolevel, valp1, valp2;
float4 p1, p2;
{
	float mu;
	float4 p = 0;
 
	if (fabs(isolevel-valp1)	< 0.00001) return(p1);
	if (fabs(isolevel-valp2)	< 0.00001) return(p2);
	if (fabs(valp1-valp2)		< 0.00001) return(p1);
	mu = isolevel - valp1) / (valp2 - valp1;
	p = mix(p1,p2,mu);
	return(p);
}
}

is it good to explicitly convert the result of the calculation
Code :
isolevel - valp1) / (valp2 - valp1
(where valp1 and valp2 are doubles) into a float, or can it be left as it is?

I presume I'd cast the result as a float like so
Code :
mu = (float)(isolevel - valp1) / (valp2 - valp1);
but am wondering if it's necessary or desirable to do so.
