[REBOL] Re: Limiting Precision of Decimals,

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 24-May-2002 21:37

Hi Louis, << Thanks! But I haven't been able to figure out how to use it. Would you please give me a sample usage? >> DOH! I was going to post a simple reply, but it appears you've outsmarted me. :) If there's only a decimal component, and the value is <~.1, REBOL returns it with scientific notation. E.g.
>> round/places/truncate 1.0659262575231111 8
== 1.06592625
>> round/places/truncate .0659262575231111 8
== 6.592625E-2 I'll have to think about this. I'm not sure that I want to scale things internally to work around this issue. Obviously, it should work for all extremes so that's what we'll have to test for in a redesign. Guess it won't work for you right now though. Sorry about that. But, thanks for finding the bug! :) Anyone else listening in? Any thoughts? --Gregg
