in thread Using (s)printf()

What if you want to chop a number but not round it? printf just *wants* to round, no option to tell it not to :(

I needed something that would chop the extra digits (price calculataions) without rounding.

quick fox was to compare the sprintf result with the original and if it was larger remove 0.01 - yuk!...

I ended up using split and substr... - not pretty either

There must be a better way!

[Cosmic37]: is anyone doing machine learning with Perl?
[Cosmic37]: I was using gneural code in C and it was interesting but did not have back propagation for neural networks
[corenth]: Cosmic, poking at it, but not really.
[Cosmic37]: I read that its possible to use the FANN library with Perl so I might try that now...
[corenth]: i have a question. I used map{ blah();blah(); blah();}@stuff; and it used up a ton of memory vs. the for(@stuff){} equivalent. What gives? (if anyone knows)
[Cosmic37]: FANN also has LGPL license which I like and its supposed to be quite a capable library from what I read
