When I do an integer division (using the forward slash /) on the tree special variable Iteration$ by an integer, I was expecting an integer result, but instead I get a double.
My task is this: I have a 2-D array on a tree branch, say array of type float. To plot the entries as a 2-D histogram. I do this:
The term iteration$%/4 gives correct integer values, ranging from 0 to 3.
The term iteration$/4 should have returned integer values in the following order: 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2
Instead, I get: 0 0.25 0.5 0.75 1.0 1.25 1.5 1.75 2.0 2.25 2.5 2.75.
Why integer division did not work in the above situation?
Is there a simple way to cast the result to an integer? (I tried various rounding methods (e.g. round(iteration$/4), but the formula is not accepted when explicitly given).
Is there a simple solution?
Thanks for your help
