Nint

Function Type:

The nint performs a transformation on REAL arguments.

Function Purpose:

The nint function will return the nearest INTEGER to the REAL argument passed to it. This is exactly the same thing as rounding numbers up or down.

Required Arguments:

nint(x)

The argument x must be a floating point number or an argument of the type REAL.

Optional Arguments:

There are no optional arguments to this function.

Results:

As stated earlier, this function basically performs a rounding operation on the real numbers that are passed to it. Therefore if x = 4.67, and this call is issued to the function:
		i = nint(x)
it should be pretty obvious that the value of i will be five.
