### 1. DECIMALS

```I wrote a little function to round a number to a expected number
of decimals. File added. But I decouver that I cannot enter more
than 5 decimals in a atom. More decimals are automaticaly rounded
to 5 decimals. Are there any solution ? Thanks
J Hendrickx.
--RONDECI.EX -- round a number at a fixed number of decimals
include get.e
atom vv, i, dec
vv= 2.594567894  -- the number
dec=3           -- number of decimal

function rondxdec(atom n, integer dec) -- (number, nber of decimals to keep)
atom pivot, balance
pivot =0.5*(power(10,-dec))
balance=power(10,dec)
n=(floor((n + pivot) * balance))/balance
return n
end function

clear_screen()
i = rondxdec(vv,dec)
? i

Instead of using ? i OR print(1, i) use
printf(1, "%.16f\n", i)

You will notice that you have truly rounded past 5 decimals.
The print statement it designed to only display up to 5 decimal places.
but printf will print up to 16 decimal places.

ONE trick to it though

atom a, b

a = 1234567890.1234567  -- 17 places just as
b = .12345678901234567  -- 17 places

printf(1, "%.16f\n", a) -- shows "1234567890.1234570000000000" AND
printf(1, "%.16f\n", b) -- shows ".1234567890123457

Thanks for thr trick, panic is over ! Jean Hendrickx
