CINT
From QB64 Wiki
The CINT function rounds decimal point numbers up or down to the nearest INTEGER value.
- value = CINT(expression)
- The expression is any TYPE of literal or variable numerical value or mathematical calculation.
Description:
- Values greater than .5 are rounded up. Values lower than .5 are rounded down just like "bankers rounding".
- Half(.5) SINGLE values are rounded to the nearest EVEN integer value whether it is up or down.
- Warning: Since CINT is used for integer values, the input values cannot exceed 32767 to -32768!
- Use CLNG for LONG integer values exceeding Integer limitations.
- Note: When decimal point values are given to Basic functions requiring INTEGERs the value will be CINTed.
Example: Shows how CINT rounds values up or down as in bankers rounding.
a% = CINT(1.49): b% = CINT(1.50): c = 11.5 COLOR c: PRINT a%, b%, c
1 2 11.5
- Note: Qbasic functions requiring INTEGER values such as text or graphic coordinates and COLOR will be rounded like CINT. Half values are rounded to the nearest even integer value.
