Hello, Is there a possible way to find out if my numbers decimal point is greater than or less than .5 and then take the neccessary steps to round up or round down to the nearest number, example:
void main() {
	double number = 0.0;

	number = 1.6;

	// here to find out if .6 is greater than or less than .5, how would I determine that

Thanks again. - BlueDev

You´re lucky! I´ve just wrote one a couple of hours ago!!

inline float FixValue(float Value)
double dInteger,dFraction;
dFraction = modf(Value,&dInteger);
if(dFraction<0.0) {
if(dFraction < -0.5)
return ((float)dInteger-1.0f);
return (float)dInteger;
} // End if.
else { // fFraction > 0.
if(dFraction > 0.5)
return ((float)dInteger+1.0f);
return (float)dInteger;
} // End else.
} // End FixValue().

Hope it helps!

If you have a decent compiler (as I think it's a c99 addition) you could use "round". If not I think that this will also work (it's a bit shorter) :

double round(double val) {
return (val > 0.0) ? floor(val + 0.5) : ceil(val - 0.5);

This should round correctly (+0.5 -> +1.0 and -0.5 -> -1.0)

Floating point values are simply truncated when converting to an int (at least in common languages like Java or C/C++). So (int) (value + 0.5) will behave as you want it to behave.
