Hello,

How can I get -0.162058 to -0.1 rather than rounding to -0.2?

I know I'm being stupid here, but it's really bugging me. The number

before the decimal point could 0 - 999

After making a function myself that was just far more complex

than needed, I saw in the user contributed notes of the manual

that someone contributed a suggestion for such function :

I was looking for a truncate function. Not finding one, I wrote my own.

Since it deals with everything as a number, I imagine it's faster than the

alternative of using string functions. HTH...

function truncate ($num, $digits = 0) {

//provide the real number, and the number of

//digits right of the decimal you want to keep.

$shift = pow(10, $digits);

return ((floor($num * $shift)) / $shift);

}

Best regards,

Eric
