How do you truncate a number. For example if I have the following: num: 47.2393 How do I get just the 47. I want to return only the first part before the decimal and do NOT want to round the number. Paul Tretter

Hi Paul Well for numbers of absolute magnitude less than 2,147,483,647 (i.e., within the range of the integer datatype) you can do this:
>> to-integer 47.2393
== 47 HTH -Larry

Damn I thought I tried that. Thanks, I knew it was something simple.
