Pref::trailingZeroes

Trailing zeroes when printing floating-point numbers

Use only in the MuPAD Notebook Interface.

This functionality does not run in MATLAB.

Syntax

Pref::trailingZeroes(value)
Pref::trailingZeroes()

Description

Pref::trailingZeroes determines, whether trailing zeroes will be appended, when floating-point numbers are printed.

If enabled (with argument TRUE), after the significant numbers of a floating-point number (behind the point) zeroes will be appended until the number of digits reaches the value of DIGITS.

A call of Pref::trailingZeroes without arguments will return the current value. The argument NIL will reset the default value, which is FALSE.

Examples

Example 1

By default, trailing zeroes will not be displayed:

DIGITS:= 10:
1.4

Display of trailing zeroes will be enabled:

Pref::trailingZeroes(TRUE):
1.4
1.400000000

The default mode is restored:

Pref::trailingZeroes(NIL):

Parameters

value

TRUE, FALSE or NIL

Return Values

Last defined value.
