poq <poq at gmx.com> added the comment:
It is generally considered more correct to write "floating-point number", because "floating-point" is a compound adjective here. The hyphen clarifies that it should be parsed as ((floating point) number) instead of (floating (point number)).
However, in practice "floating point number" is also commonly used. I completely agree with Eli that this is just nitpicking, and not a productive use of Python developers' time.
