NInt Intrinsic


NInt: INTEGER(KIND=1) function.

A: REAL; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Intrinsic groups: (standard FORTRAN 77).


Returns A with the fractional portion of its magnitude eliminated by rounding to the nearest whole number and with its sign preserved, converted to type INTEGER(KIND=1).

If A is type COMPLEX, its real part is rounded and converted.

A fractional portion exactly equal to .5 is rounded to the whole number that is larger in magnitude. (Also called "Fortran round".)

See Int Intrinsic, for how to convert, truncate to whole number.

See ANInt Intrinsic, for how to round to nearest whole number without converting.
