[DB-SIG] DCOracle 2 question - Ints vs. Floats

'select 1.1 as thing from dual'

gives me a description of
('THING','NUMBER',3,3,0,0,1)

while 

'select 11 as thing from dual'

gives me a description of 
('THING','NUMBER',2,2,0,0,1)

Is there any way of telling one is a float and the other is an int
without retrieving a row?

Paul
