How do you know that it is reading only 5? Are you using a debugger or using printf? If you are using printf maybe you are using a wrong format specifier.

Because if I don't use that method and just print out some number it works.

I've used the following specifiers:

%f -- gives 5.000000

%.2g gives 5 ( g is the only one I know how to use to format decimal places)


Uhhh, why does C have to be a pain in the butthole?

It's reading the 5.5, but for some reason it's being truncated in the conversion:

int num;
        if (sscanf(text,"%d",&num) == 1 && num > 0)

But %d is the format specifier to read an integer. So it will read only the integer part of the contents in text . You have to use something like %f or %lf . I dont know what is standard specific ( I thought lf was the correct one for double, but someone said above that it was wrong, but my MSVC compiler only reads double for the %lf specifier) . I also saw some suggestions for a double in the above replies of this thread. you can lookup them.

Note:
English is not my first language. I dont know if being suggested to be a masochist is offending so much. But I know that being called an asshole is. I think that type of language is uncalled for. Think twice before posting things like that.

Wow, that makes me feel dumb. For some reason I was thinking %d for for double. Although, I believe I have tried %f with double and it gave weird results.

Why don't you head on over to dictionary.com and tell me which is worse, what he said, or what I said. I'm still fuming over that. I could have said a lot more but I had some self control.

Hey, ya know, what's wrong with a little excitement? I knew YOU would understand:cheesy:

Personal reasons. I was testing something stupid, but I just dropped it. I like Dev C++ too much.

Okay. I did. I found what Salem would have meant.

# A willingness or tendency to subject oneself to unpleasant or trying experiences.

This was what I thought Salem meant when I saw his reply at first. Is this so much agitating to you?

I think you missed part/most of the defintion:

The deriving of sexual gratification, or the tendency to derive sexual gratification, from being physically or emotionally abused.

I'll just settle this in a PM with this dirt bag.

I wouldnt have said a thing if server_crash called you an [Profanity edited for the G-rated among us....] :p I would just sat back and enjoyed it. he he he. But I think Salem does not deserve to be called that.
