Hello, with the following code :
a = rndn(100,1); print meanc(a-meanc(a));
returns something like :
What should I do to get 0 ???
PS : I use GAUSS ENGINE 13
You change the format of your print statements by using the format command. Here is a basic example:
a = rndn(100,1); format /rd 8,3; print meanc(a - meanc(a));
This will return:
The first input to format, in this case /rd, tells GAUSS to:
- r - right format the printed output
- d - print the data as a decimal
The second input to format, in this case 8,3, tells GAUSS to:
- 8 - give each printed number enough space for 8 characters
- 3 - print out 3 decimal places
If you wanted to print numbers that were left formatted using scientific notation rather than decimal format and wanted to print 4 decimals, you could enter:
format /le 8,4; print meanc(a - meanc(a));
This will return something like:
Besides the d and e options, you can also use the z option. This will use either decimal or scientific notation, whichever is more concise. It will also suppress trailing zeros. Here is a link to another post describing this.
