( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

From this comment:

* d_Gconvert='gconvert((x),(n),(t),(b))' * d_Gconvert='gcvt((x),(n),(b))' * d_Gconvert='sprintf((b),"%.*g",(n),(x))'

... I assume that you should be able to influence the value of the Gconvert macro by supplying a value on the ./Configure command line:

sh ./Configure -des -DGconvert='sprintf(...)'
# or maybe
d_Gconvert='sprintf(...)' sh ./Configure -des

(but I have not tested this, nor do I really know how to determine if what I see is correct ;) )

The "real fix", I guess, would be to extend the Configure unit for Gconvert (likely d_gconvert.U) to check the output of the respective C programs and then choose an appropriate value...

Update: See below for Tux approach of setting up a Policy.sh file, to evade quoting problems etc

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
