ok I want to do printf("%.2f", float) but with a stream. this should be easy, but I can't get it to work. setprecison sets the total number of digits i.e.
float x = 123.456;

cout << setprecision(2) << x;

//output
1.2e+002 // I want 123.45, goddamnit!!!!!!
is there a way to do this? I don't want to use printf unless there's no other choice (all of the rest of my code uses streams)
