FUNCTION: Fix( )
Implemented in version 1.0
Fix(Number)
The Fix function converts a decimal number (floatingpoint)
to an integer number (fixpoint).
There is a companion function Int that also converts to integers.
There is one major difference between Int and Fix. Int
rounds negative numbers down. Fix rounds negative numbers up.
Code:
<% =Fix(123.456) %>
Output:
123
Positive numbers are not rounded up. The decimal point and all digits
to the right are effectively chopped off.
Code:
<% =Fix(123.899) %>
Output:
123
Negative numbers can also be converted. Negative numbers are rounded
up (towards more positive). The decimal point and all digits to the
right are effectively chopped off.
Code:
<% =Fix(123.899) %>
Output:
123
