convert money values to integer?

 [1/13] from: kpeters:otaksoft at: 26-Aug-2007 12:25


Wow - I expected this to work: a: $100 print to-integer a a: %=$4.95 print to-decimal a So what do you use for this simple? conversion? Thanks, Kai

a: $100.95 print to-integer second a print round second a etc. HTH, Christian Kai Peters schrieb:

As explained in http://www.rebol.com/docs/core23/rebolcore-16.html#section-3.4

== decimal! I agree that 'to-integer and 'to-decimal should work on money! type. Can someone RAMBO that if it's not already there ? -- DocKimbel Kai Peters wrote:

Strings are handy for that...

I'm not sure of assignment above. Did you mailer add something? ;; similarly:
>> a: $4.95
== $4.95

Thanks for the super-prompt help everybody! Had skimmed the Core Manual (more the examples, to be honest) and thus not read about the fact that money! is a hybrid two-part datatype - now it makes sense! Thanks again, Kai

Say what? Well, I just learned something new! On a related note, look here:
>> t: now/date
== 26-Aug-2007
>> t/1
== 2007
>> t/2
== 8
>> t/3
== 26 ;; but the path referencing is counter-intuitive ;; (to me anyway) Tim

Hmm, I did not read up on it yet but it would seem as if dates are kept in ISO format yyyy-mm-dd internally and thus we would see what you describe below?? Kai

I think you nailed it. referencing path/indexes on 'now (without the /date refinement) appears consistant with ISO. tim

What annoys me is that you can't do now/1 .. now/2 .. now/3 etc. On 8/27/07, Gregg Irwin <gregg-pointillistic.com> wrote:
