Rounding problem

Hi,

I have a strange problem with number rounding:
If I try “a_number.round(2)” in console - it works, but the same line
thru passenger fails: “wrong number of arguments (1 for 0)”.
Any ideas why?

I’m running rails 2.3.4 and passenger 2.2.9

Is a_number an integer ?
rails overrides round to allow it to take a precision argument, but it
only does that on Float - Integers still have the standard round
method, which does not take a precision argument.

Thanks for the answers - This solved my problem partly. In database
(mysql) the number is a decimal - but for some reason it seems to be
an integer in rails if it’s decimals are zeros.

class Float
def round_to(x)
(self * 10x).round.to_f / 10x
end
end

then you can use round_to(2)

what is the range of values that you’re working with? 0 to 100, -3000 to
4000?

To avoid floating point errors, you might as well just do :
(self * 1.0).round.(x)
or
self.to_f.round.(x)

And wouldn’t that be a patch to class Integer, as Float already has
.round working fine? Or am I missing something ?:-/
