How to edit number precision in Applescript??
I have been learning Applescript recently and I can't figure out how to format the precision of a number. I have looked through forums and have looked through a couple of books as well as the Applescript Language Guide.
The "round" command comes close but isn't exactly what I need.
What I need in the end it to round numbers to the nearest two decimal places.
example : 18.094898203 to 18.09
Thanks for any help!

(* format is roundThis(inDec, precision) *) roundThis(75.5436, 1) --this will round to 75.5 on roundThis(n, numDecimals) set x to 10 ^ numDecimals (((n * x) + 0.5) div 1) / x end roundThis

Can't you just use a double variable?
Then again, I have not gone that in depth into applescript using numbers, that's where I just fall back to Java.
EDIT: Applescript doesn't support double types. Not suprised, but it's kind of an expected features, you know?
