Print Targ

'with the # mask, you can provide the number of digits before and after 'the point

'the result should be 99.5



'with a 0 before the point, you can indicate how many digits you want to 'have filled with zeros

Targ = Fusing(s , 000.#)

'the result should be 099.5


'When you dont want that the result is rounded, you can use the & indicator


Targ = Fusing(s , 000.&&)

'result should be 099.49


'note that if the number of digits you provide is not enough to store the 'result result is extended automaticly


'Also note that the - sign will use one digit of the mask too


S = -99.12

Targ = Fusing(s , 00.&&)

'result is -99.12
