I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to round a number using Lua? I'm displaying the current share in terabytes, but cause of the division its a really ugly number with 16 numbers after the decimal place. I'd like to round the number to something a little nicer looking, like 2 numbers after the decimal place, but I can't figure out how.


If you paste your script in here, then we can take a look at it.

will not be that hard to realize... 8)


Okay, heres the part of the script I'm having problems with:

function NewUserConnected(curUser)
  if (
frmHub:GetCurrentShareAmount()/1099511627776 MaxSharethen
if (frmHub:GetUsersCount() > MaxUsersthen

function showstats(userobj)
userobj:SendData(BotName," Largest # of users connected:"..MaxUsers)
userobj:SendData(BotName," Largest total share:"..MaxShare.." TB")

Everything works okay, I'd jsut like to be able to round MaxShare to 2 decimal places, cause the division to get it into terabytes makes the number really ugly.

c h i l l a

maybe this

share = format("%.2f",share)


thanks, thats exactly what I was looking for.
