#### Rounding (up/down) to a certain number of decimal places

```Hello Group

How do I round say 1.23 up/down to 2 decimal places? I am currently
(ab)using [format].

Thanks

Sounds like the right choice.

Using [format] is completly correct way, but if you prefer to avoid it
for some reason, there is other way:

set precision 2
set roundedValue [expr { double(round(\$value * pow(10,\$precision))) /
pow(10,\$precision) }]

Thanks Donald and Googie ... least of all for figuring out what I
meant. My example should have been 1.234 :P
Yes [format] works fine on my machine but I was just wondering about
whether it would behave the same on other machines and whether that
was the correct way to do it. Sounds like it is. (IIRC, C's <stdio.h>
printf's behaviour is undefined here. But this is Tcl of course ...
and my C is rusty.)

Thanks again.

Not a number problem
In my code I used NAN and isnan(x). I found they were convenient to use. I also noticed that older C standard does not support NAN and isnan(x). When I compiled my program using: gcc -Wall -c it was fine. But when I compiled my program using: gcc -Wall -ansi -pedantic -c it reported some errors, reporting NAN and isnan(x) not supported. I knew the options -ansi and -pedantic make things conform to the older C standard (C90?). My question are: 1. Is it fine to compile my program using "gcc -Wall -c" instead of using the more conservative "gcc -Wall -ansi -pedantic -c...

rounding FP to u significant digits
While REPRESENT provides for the creation of a string representation of a floating point number to a specified number of significant digits, there are some situations in which it is necessary to round an fp number to a fixed number of significant digits. These situations are probably rare, but I ran into one recently for the numerical solutions of eigenvectors. An word for rounding fp numbers to a specified number of significant digits is given below. Perhaps this can be shortened?

Credit card number rounding?
I am trying to print a contract for a customer specifying use of their credit card number. For some odd reason the number is being rounded. I checked - it's a text field. On the other hand, I format it as: CCNO: Format([CCNum],"0000-0000-0000-0000") The last two digits get rounded e.g. 36 becoms 40 etc. I believe it's being coerced into a numeric field before it's being formatted, and the numeric field can't support the number of significant digits you require. You may have to use String functions: CCNO: Left([CCNum], 4] & "-" & Mid([CCNum], ...

rounding
Hi, I am attempting to round a number (float) to 2 decimal digits in java. How is this possible? Thanks, -- Adrien Martel cs2 One approach would be to multiply the number by 100, cast it to an int, then divide it by 100.0.

Rounding (COBOL and otherwise)
As a follow-up to the other "threads" on ROUNDING, I have posted a page that is an (edited) version of a paper discussed by J4 in 1993 on "rounding" and some other possible (and existing in other languages and software) approaches. Thank you to Jordan Wouk for providing his original paper to me. The edited online version may be viewed at: http://home.comcast.net/~wmklein/DOX/RNDG.htm It should be noted that even as the 2002 Standard was revised and delayed, it was felt that there was insufficient "user-demand" to extend (much less modify) the existing (tr...

sorting polynomials by the degree of certain terms
Hi, I dealing with huge polynomials (around 50,000 terms). Each term may contain some real coefficient, followed by any combination of 11 variables, each of which may be raised to some some power. However, I'm interested in sorting the polynomial according to the sum of the degrees of only 2 of the variables. In other words, in the sorted expression, the first terms would be those where the two variables do not appear (the sum of their powers is zero). The next terms would be the terms where one of the two variables appeared raised to the power 1. The next terms would be the ter...

Let me second the excellent advice of Peter and Dale. There is simply no *point* in drawing a boxplot when you have so few points that you can plot all the points instead. A boxplot is an exploratory data approach to handle the case where there are more data points than can be visualized. Unless you have discrete values which pile up on top of one another, you can simply plot the individ...

Aereo Loses First Round in Copyright Office, While Dish Wins its Next Round in the Ninth Circuit [telecom]

Aereo - the gift that keeps on giving, at least when it comes to blogworthy content.

how to convert string into number

How to verify if a string contains valid decimal data
Hi all, I have some strings that I need to convert to fixed decimal(p, q). The strings all have type char(100), but p and q will vary based on different fields in the record. Before assigning the strings to fixed decimal(p, q) variables I would like to validate that they are in a proper format, to give som nice error messages if they are not. I know I could let the compiler handle this for me, but that gives warnings in the compiler listing and makes it impossible to give nice error messages. Therefor I cooked up the following function to validate if a string can be converted to a fixed dec...
