Attributes

nearest int When set to 1 (the default), the round object will round to the nearest multiple of the specified number value.

Note: This attribute does not set the rounding step (which is set using round object's right inlet), It specifies that rounding to the nearest number value will occur. Here are some examples:

With the rounding interval set to 3 and the nearest attribute set to 1:
an input value of 5.8 will return 6
an input value of 3.7 will return 3
an input value of -1 will return 0
an input value of -2.7 will return -3

With the rounding interval set to 3 and the nearest attribute set to 0:
an input value of 5.8 will return 3
an input value of 3.7 will return 3
an input value of -1 will return 0
an input value of -2.7 will return 0

Information for box attributes common to all objects
