Topic: Variable precision printing of floats (Read 602 times) previous topic - next topic

I've been using this function from the Print library to print floats:

Code: [Select]
void Print::printFloat(double number, uint8_t digits)

It is currently a private, but is making it available to the Print class as simple as moving it down into the publics in Print.h?


EmilyJane

Cool. And if I delete Print.cpp.o, it will recompile automagically?

If you are going to modify the class, adding the following two methods are a more consistent way of getting the functionality you are looking for (of course you need to declare these in the h file as well)

Code: [Select]
void Print::print(double n, uint8_t digits)
{
 printFloat(n, digits);
}

void Print::println(double n, uint8_t digits)
{
 printFloat(n, digits);
 println();
}

I expect the Arduino team will be supporting user settable precision in future using this syntax.

Yes, that preserves the orthogonality. That's the way I'll do it.

And maybe even the Reference page as well... ;)
