Get non-fractional/round down to nearest int?

Hey all,

Curious what the most efficient way to round to to the nearest int value is in csound. Thanks in advance!

Thank you, do not know how I missed that one haha. Much thanks!

but note that int() does not return the nearest integer, but the integer
part of a fractional number. rounding is done with round():
int(1.6) -> 1
round(1.6) -> 2

The docs says this about the round() opcode:

if the fractional part of x is exactly 0.5, the direction of rounding is undefined

Okey that’s fine, but what if you actually want to round up/down when the fractional part is exactly 0.5? Any tips on how to do this or any opcodes?

hmm — not tested but i think something like this should work:

iNum = 5.5
if frac(iNum) == 0.5 then
iNum = floor(iNum)

or in one line:

iNum = (frac(iNum) == 0.5) ? floor(iNum) : iNum


Thanks, those are some useful opcodes I’ve never seen before!
