DEFINITION MODULE ConvStringLong ;
Description: provides a set of procedures which translate
floating point numbers to their String equivalent.
This is not part of the ISO standard, but it is
used by a number of ISO modules.
FROM DynamicStrings IMPORT String ;
RealToFloatString - converts a real with, sigFigs, into a string
and returns the result as a string.
PROCEDURE RealToFloatString (real: LONGREAL; sigFigs: CARDINAL) : String ;
RealToEngString - converts the value of real to floating-point
string form, with sigFigs significant figures.
The number is scaled with one to three digits
in the whole number part and with an exponent
that is a multiple of three.
PROCEDURE RealToEngString (real: LONGREAL; sigFigs: CARDINAL) : String ;
RealToFixedString - returns the number of characters in the fixed-point
string representation of real rounded to the given
place relative to the decimal point.
PROCEDURE RealToFixedString (real: LONGREAL; place: INTEGER) : String ;
