Hello again,
I was testing to truncate a value with how many decimals case i want.
Nice, i found a function that make this, but, use double, and i need to use float,
double is crashing everything with StackOverFlow errors that i can't fix.
And with float that works..
This is the code of the function.
```double trunc(double value, int decimal_places){
double integer = 0,fractional = 0,output = 0;
int j = 0,places = 1;
fractional = modf(value, &output);
for( int i = 0; i < decimal_places + 1; i++ ){
fractional = modf(fractional, &integer);
for( j = 0; j < i; j++ ){
places *= 10;
}
output += integer / places;
places = 1;
fractional *= 10;
}
return output;
}```

Thanks

If double is "crashing everything" (due to your mistakes, apparently), so you are resorting to float? Very nice. I'll tell you this: with such attitude, consider your career of a software development is ended, no sense to continue. Or rethink it.
Good luck,

SA may have a point. Where is your OWN code?

Yess! I forgot to say that! That function isn't mine! I asked help to my teacher, and he sent me a email. Obviously he found at somewhere. I found my answer, thanks!
