roundMpfr: Rounding to Binary bits, "mpfr-internally"

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/Math.R

Description

Rounding to binary bits, not decimal digits. Closer to the number representation, this also allows to increase or decrease a number's precBits. In other words, it acts as setPrec(), see getPrec().

Usage

1
roundMpfr(x, precBits, rnd.mode = c("N","D","U","Z","A"))

Arguments

x

an mpfr number (vector)

precBits

integer specifying the desired precision in bits.

rnd.mode

a 1-letter string specifying how rounding should happen at C-level conversion to MPFR, see mpfr.

Value

an mpfr number as x but with the new 'precBits' precision

See Also

The mpfr class group method Math2 implements a method for round(x, digits) which rounds to decimal digits.

Examples

 (p1 <- Const("pi", 100)) # 100 bit prec
 roundMpfr(p1, 120) # 20 bits more, but "random noise"
 Const("pi", 120)   # same "precision", but really precise
