Tcl_PrintDouble(interp, value, dst)
- Tcl_Interp *interp (in)
- Before Tcl 8.0, the tcl_precision variable in this interpreter controlled the conversion. As of Tcl 8.0, this argument is ignored and the conversion is controlled by the tcl_precision variable that is now shared by all interpreters.
- double value (in)
- Floating-point value to be converted.
- char *dst (out)
- Where to store the string representing value. Must have at least TCL_DOUBLE_SPACE characters of storage.
If the tcl_precision value is non-zero, the result will have precisely that many digits of significance. If the value is zero (the default), the result will have the fewest digits needed to represent the number in such a way that Tcl_NewDoubleObj will generate the same number when presented with the given string.
