RE: setting output precision

hello Professor Cremona (and others),

I had some code where I wanted to do something similar.

I used the following:

I hope that helps.

Is 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 like
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.
