## rounding numbers

(OP)
how can you round a number up? so if the numbers 8.09181 it will round up to 9?

### RE: rounding numbers

one guess.....

#!/usr/local/bin/perl

$num = '8.0134'; if ($num - int($num)) {$num = int(++$num); } print "$num\n";

'hope this helps.

keep the rudder amid ship and beware the odd typo

### RE: rounding numbers

you could use sprintf() or POSIX::ceil

or you could do int($num+1) Sincerely, Tom Anderson CEO, Order amid Chaos, Inc. http://www.oac-design.com ### RE: rounding numbers (OP) thanks for your help, i used a different technique. i added 0.9999999 to the number and then cut the decimals off. ### RE: rounding numbers That is exactly what I said above: int($num+1)
