fixed digits


    Oct 22 2008 | 1:04 pm
    Hi there, quick question ..
    I'd like my ints to be output with a set amount of digits, so that for
    example 74 should always be output as a number with 6 digits like
    000074 and 100 like 000100 and so on. I made a dirty fix with sprintf
    but am wondering if there isn't a more elegant way or preferably
    object (or other trick that i might have overlooked) to do such a
    thing ?
    thanks !

      My good old rs.numbox does this nicely all in one object.
      If you should happen to still use 4.6 on OSX feel free to grab it
      here: http://arts.lu/roby/
      Otherwise you have to wait for the Max 5 SDK to be released.
      In the meantime the combine object with @padding might be helpful too.

      I use the [sprintf] object with the "%.6d" argument where "6" is the number of digits you want your incoming number forced to:
