|RE: setting output precision|
hello Professor Cremona (and others), I had some code where I wanted to do something similar. I used the following: default(realprecision,100); default(format,"g0.10"); I hope that helps.

Cremona" <John.Cremona@nottingham.ac.uk> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: setting output precision Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2005 17:42:31 +0100Is there an easy way in gp to do computations to high precision (say, 100) but only output in low precision (say, 10)? I know that I can achieve this by adding lots of lines likedefault(realprecision,100); default(realprecision,10);in my script, but thought there might be a better way of just turning down the precision for output only.This is in a computation where intermerdiate stages have to be done to high precision but (of course) I only need the result to low precision.John -- Prof. J.
