( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Here shown all round-like functions which exists in perl:
#!/usr/bin/perl use POSIX; @a=(3.3, 3.5, 3.7, -3.3, -3.5, -3.7, 3.45); print "number\tint\tprintf\tfloor\tceil\n"; printf "%.2f\t%.1f\t%.1f\t%.2f\t%.2f\n", $_, int, $_, floor($_), ceil($_) foreach (@a);
This code produce this output:
number	int	printf	floor	ceil
3.30	3.0	3.3	3.00	4.00
3.50	3.0	3.5	3.00	4.00
3.70	3.0	3.7	3.00	4.00
-3.30	-3.0	-3.3	-4.00	-3.00
-3.50	-3.0	-3.5	-4.00	-3.00
-3.70	-3.0	-3.7	-4.00	-3.00
3.45	3.0	3.5	3.00	4.00
