Post subject:  converting VB Int() to RB

I have a VBfunction i am converting which uses this....basically does not round but return just integer part of a number....

I have looked in documentation but am not sure...is the equivalent the Floor function?

Yup. :)

Floor rounds down (ignoring all but the integer, as it were); ceiling rounds up invariably.

You don't need floor in this instance.
Dim mvar as double = 3.14
dim mInt as integer = mvar

MInt now equals 3

I'm sure it's unnecessary, but I tend not to trust myself to such conversions. It wouldn't surprise me if — say in the switch to LLVM — the conversion altered from an implicit floor, to rounding. Albeit, I'm sure there's a convention for this, but I like to be safe and explicit.

But, I'm starting to delve in to development preferences. ;)

Sure you need to use Floor() because Int() in VB delivers the greatest whole number that is smaller than the float-value that is within it's brackets.
In RB:
dim mint as integer = 3.14 gives as result 3
and for negative values:
dim mint as integer = -3.14 gives as result -3

but in VB:
Int(3.14) gives as result 3 (this is equal to the result in RB)
Int(-3.14) gives as result -4 (instead of -3 in RB)

Using Floor(mint) gives the same results in RB as Int(mint) in VB.

Best regards,
Andre
