CPP11 — Fixed::round and truncate issue

  • Key: CPP11-110
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2950
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Progress Software ( Steve Vinoski)
  • Summary:

    The Fixed::round() and Fixed::truncate() functions do not mention what to
    do if their scale argument is larger than the current scale. I figure they
    shouldn't do anything – for example, "truncating" by making something have
    more digits doesn't seem to make sense. I propose adding the sentence below
    after the sentence reading "The round and truncate functions convert a
    fixed value to a new value with the specified scale." (page 23-32 of

    If the new scale is equal to or larger than the new scale, no rounding or
    truncation is performed and the result is equal to the target object.
