Redis

INCRBYFLOAT key increment

Increment the string representing a floating point number stored at key by the specified increment. If the key does not exist, it is set to 0 before performing the operation. An error is returned if one of the following conditions occur:

If the command is successful the new incremented value is stored as the new value of the key (replacing the old one), and returned to the caller as a string.

Both the value already contained in the string key and the increment argument can be optionally provided in exponential notation, however the value computed after the increment is stored consistently in the same format, that is, an integer number followed (if needed) by a dot, and a variable number of digits representing the decimal part of the number. Trailing zeroes are always removed.

The precision of the output is fixed at 17 digits after the decimal point regardless of the actual internal precision of the computation.

Return value

Bulk string reply: the value of key after the increment.

Examples

redis>  SET mykey 10.50
OK
redis>  INCRBYFLOAT mykey 0.1
"10.6"
redis>  SET mykey 5.0e3
OK
redis>  INCRBYFLOAT mykey 2.0e2
"5200"
redis> 

Implementation details

The command is always propagated in the replication link and the Append Only File as a SET operation, so that differences in the underlying floating point math implementation will not be sources of inconsistency.
