REBOL Programming/round

USAGE:Edit

ROUND n /even /down /half-down /floor /ceiling /half-ceiling /to scale 

DESCRIPTION:Edit

Returns the nearest integer. Halves round up (away from zero) by default.

ROUND is a function value.

ARGUMENTSEdit

  • n -- The value to round (Type: number money time)

REFINEMENTSEdit

  • /even -- Halves round toward even results
  • /down -- Round toward zero, ignoring discarded digits. (truncate)
  • /half-down -- Halves round toward zero
  • /floor -- Round in negative direction
  • /ceiling -- Round in positive direction
  • /half-ceiling -- Halves round in positive direction
  • /to -- Return the nearest multiple of the scale parameter
    • scale -- Must be a non-zero value (Type: number money time)

(SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES)Edit

  • catch
