Subject: Re: Round up Not down
It seems that the data are being recorded in intervals of 1/128, stored to
four decimal places. You want to round to intervals of 1/64, also stored to
four decimal places. You want 9/128 to round up to 5/64 even though it's
already been rounded to something closer to 1/16.
do i = 0 to 128;
from = round(18 + i/128,0.0001);
to = round(round(from * 128 + 0.5,2) / 128,0.0001);
The 0.5 is just a somewhat arbitrary term to make sure that knife-edge
values tip the right way.
