round

decimal round(decimal arg);

long round(number arg);

integer round(integer arg, integer precision);

long round(long arg, integer precision);

number round(number arg, integer precision);

decimal round(decimal arg, integer precision);

The round() function returns a rounded value using the "half up" rounding mode: if both neighbors are equidistant, rounds up.

Positive precision denotes the number of places after the decimal point and negative precision stands for the number of places before the decimal point. Therefore it only makes sense to use negative precision for integer and long data type arguments, since it signals to round to tens, hundreds, thousands and so on. So round(123, -2) will result in 100 and round(123.123, 2) will result in 123.12.

If the parameter precision is missing, the function rounds to nearest integer value.

If the given argument is null, the function fails with an error.

roundHalfToEven

decimal roundHalfToEven(decimal arg);

decimal roundHalfToEven(decimal arg, integer precision);

The roundHalfToEven() function returns decimal value rounded to the closest integer value.

Uses the "half to even" rounding mode (also called banker's rounding), i.e. if both the neighbors are equidistant, rounds to the nearest even number.

If a given argument is null, the function fails with an error.

Positive precision denotes the number of places after the decimal point and negative precision stands for the number of places before the decimal point (tens, hundreds, thousands and so on).

Compatibility

The roundHalfToEven(decimal) and roundHalfToEven(number) functions are available since CloverETL 3.5.0-M2.

Example 68.79. Usage of roundHalfToEven

The function roundHalfToEven(2.5D) returns 2.

The function roundHalfToEven(3.5D) returns 4.

The function roundHalfToEven(2.25D, 1) returns 2.2.

The function roundHalfToEven(2.35D, 1) returns 2.4.

The function roundHalfToEven(12.25D, -1) returns 10.00.

setRandomSeed

void setRandomSeed(long arg);

The setRandomSeed() function generates the seed for all functions that generate values at random.

This function should be used in the init() function or method.

In such a case, all values generated at random do not change on different runs of the graph, they even remain the same after the graph is reset.

If the given argument is null, the function fails with an error.

The setRandomSeed() function sets random seed only for the CLT2 code of the component where it is used. It does not set the random seed for CTL2 functions in other components.

Compatibility

The setRandomSeed(long) function is available since CloverETL 3.0.0.

Example 68.80. Usage of setRandomSeed

function boolean init() { setRandomSeed(123456789012345678L); return true; }

signum

integer signum(integer arg);

long signum(long arg);

number signum(number arg);

integer signum(decimal arg);

The signum() function returns signum of the argument.

If the argument is negative, the function returns -1. If the argument is positive, the function returns 1. It the argument is 0, the function returns 0.

If the argument is null, the function fails.

Compatibility

The signum(integer), signum(long), signum(number) and signum(decimal) functions are available since CloverETL 3.5.0-M2.

Example 68.81. Usage of signum

The function signum(-2147483648)returns -1.

The function signum(-123456789012345L) returns -1.
