FIX Function

Basic Computer Programming Language Command Set

Purpose::

To truncate x to a whole number.

Syntax:

FIX(x)

Comments:

FIX does not round off numbers, it simply eliminates the decimal point and all characters to the right of the decimal point.

FIX(x) is equivalent to SGN(x)*INT(ABS(x)). The major difference between FIX and INT is that FIX does not return the next lower number for negative x.

FIX is useful in modulus arithmetic.

Examples:

PRINT FIX(58.75)
 58

PRINT FIX(-58.75)
 -58
