Tcl_PrintDouble()

Convert floating value to string 

Tcl Library Procedures


SYNOPSIS

#include <tcl.h>

Tcl_PrintDouble(interp, value, dst)


ARGUMENTS

Tcl_Interp *interp (in) 

Before Tcl 8.0, the tcl_precision variable in this interpreter controlled the conversion. As of Tcl 8.0, this argument is ignored and the conversion is controlled by the tcl_precision variable that is now shared by all interpreters.

double value (in) 

Floating-point value to be converted.

char *dst (out) 

Where to store string representing value. Must have at least TCL_DOUBLE_SPACE characters of storage.


DESCRIPTION

Tcl_PrintDouble() generates a string that represents the value of value and stores it in memory at the location given by dst. It uses %g format to generate the string, with one special twist: the string is guaranteed to contain either a . or an e so that it doesn't look like an integer. Where %g would generate an integer with no decimal point, Tcl_PrintDouble() adds .0.


PORTABILITY
