BigRoot precision questionMessage ID:

5ef30377-7d9b-8507-4937-b9f39949edae@zoho.comHi All, In the following paper on Big Root: https://newbedev.com/how-can-i-set-the-level-of-precision-for-raku-s-sqrt > use BigRoot; > BigRoot.precision = 7; > say (BigRoot.newton's-sqrt: 2;).base(10) 1.4142136 > say (BigRoot.newton's-sqrt: 2;).base(16) 1.6A09E7 That is a base(10) precision. In base(16) (Hex) that is only 3 digits past the decimal. 0x6A-0x09-0xE7 Is there a way to tell BigRoot I want a certain amount of Hex digits I want after the decimal? Or just ask for double I want and prune afterwards? Many thanks, -T -- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When you say, "I wrote a program that crashed Windows," people just stare at you blankly and say, "Hey, I got those with the system, for free." -- Linus Torvalds ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Thread Next
