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!
