stround

stround provides arbitrary precision rounding of the types supported by typical number formatting libraries (e.g. NSNumberFormatter, BigDecimal) for numbers represented as strings. The purpose is to avoid floating point errors while still working with decimal values.

Install

$ npm install stround

Usage

$ node
> var stround = require('stround');
// Extract exports for examples below.
> var round = stround.round;
> var shift = stround.shift;
> var modes = stround.modes;

Round to integers if no precision is specified:

> round('5.025');
'5'
> round('12.8');
'13'

Round specifying a precision:

> round('1.18', 1);
'1.2'
> round('1.18', 2);
'1.18'
> round('1.68', 0);
'2'

The result will have the specified precision:

> round('1', 2);
'1.00'
> round('84.9', 2);
'84.90'

Round toward positive infinity:

> round('1.1', 0, modes.CEILING);
'2'
> round('-1.1', 0, modes.CEILING);
'-1'

Round toward negative infinity:

> round('1.8', 0, modes.FLOOR);
'1'
> round('-1.8', 0, modes.FLOOR);
'-2'

Round toward zero:

> round('1.8', 0, modes.DOWN);
'1'
> round('-1.8', 0, modes.DOWN);
'-1'

Round away from zero:

> round('1.1', 0, modes.UP);
'2'
> round('-1.1', 0, modes.UP);
'-2'

Round towards the nearest integer, or towards an even number if equidistant (this is the default):

> round('1.4', 0, modes.HALF_EVEN);
'1'
> round('1.5', 0, modes.HALF_EVEN);
'2'
> round('2.5', 0, modes.HALF_EVEN);
'2'
> round('-2.5', 0, modes.HALF_EVEN);
'-2'
> round('2.6', 0, modes.HALF_EVEN);
'3'

Round towards the nearest integer, or towards zero if equidistant:

> round('1.4', 0, modes.HALF_DOWN);
'1'
> round('1.5', 0, modes.HALF_DOWN);
'1'
> round('2.5', 0, modes.HALF_DOWN);
'2'
> round('-2.5', 0, modes.HALF_DOWN);
'-2'
> round('2.6', 0, modes.HALF_DOWN);
'3'

Round towards the nearest integer, or away from zero if equidistant:

> round('1.4', 0, modes.HALF_UP);
'1'
> round('1.5', 0, modes.HALF_UP);
'2'
> round('2.5', 0, modes.HALF_UP);
'3'
> round('-2.5', 0, modes.HALF_UP);
'-3'
> round('2.6', 0, modes.HALF_UP);
'3'

It is sometimes convenient to adjust the exponent of a number, too:

> shift('12', 2);
'1200'
> shift('123.4', -2);
'1.234'

And sometimes it's useful to keep the decimal parts in a tuple:

> shift([false, '12', '34'], 2)
[false, '1234', '']
