% hbatch
/ -> set VAR =  89.9889
/ -> echo `$VAR>90`
0
/ -> echo `ifs( 89.9889>90, 'true', 'false')`
false
/ -> echo `ifs( $VAR>90, 'true', 'false')`
false

I can't reproduce this at all...

Here are the commands without prompts (for cut & paste)
set VAR =  89.9889
echo `$VAR>90`
echo `ifs( 89.9889>90, 'true', 'false')`
echo `ifs( $VAR>90, 'true', 'false')`

Can you get me a command script which fails like this?  Perhaps it's
treating $VAR as a string?  So, maybe if you used atof($VAR)?
