Rounding always causes problems !

Some like it one way, others the other. There are quite a few web pages
describing rounding methods.

Maybe you/we need a function to take a value and a rounding method and
return the appropriately rounded result. There is a similar thing available
from Rogue Wave for one of their C++ class libraries.



PS. For rogue waves library details, rounding methods, sample ins and outs,
see this page :

Subject: [IBO] Rounding problems

I've encountered a rounding problem with int64 numerics
using Delphi5 Pro and IBO4.2.Hc. When rounding 10.5 it results
10 witch is not ok for my client.
