Tcl_PrintDouble — Convert floating value to string
Tcl_PrintDouble(interp, value, dst)
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
so that it does not look like an integer. Where %g would
generate an integer with no decimal point, Tcl_PrintDouble adds
- 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 the string representing value. Must have at
least TCL_DOUBLE_SPACE characters of storage.
If the tcl_precision value is non-zero, the result will have
precisely that many digits of significance. If the value is zero
(the default), the result will have the fewest digits needed to
represent the number in such a way that Tcl_NewDoubleObj
will generate the same number when presented with the given string.
IEEE semantics of rounding to even apply to the conversion.
