jit.cellblock -9 problem


    Oct 16 2007 | 6:32 am
    i tested derek's accusation, and it's true- jit.cellblock won't display most negative float numbers. what's up with that?

      If you increase the default cell width, the numbers show up. So, for
      example, if I change the default cell width to 65, all of the numbers
      show up. This is a problem with displaying cell contents that cannot
      be "broken" properly. Another option, if you prefer, is to reduce
      the default float precision of the cellblock - I'm not sure how much
      precision you need, but that is an alternative that will allow you to
      see more rows without scrolling.

      This seems to be insider knowledge, I couldn't find anything in the help
      file, the inspector or the manual how to change the default float
      precision for cellblock (it might be well hidden)...
      I think best would be if the display of floats in cellblock
      automatically would follow exactly the same rules as the display in
      float number boxes. Either cut them or do a float display correction...
      I would call the momentary behaviour a design bug, and the proposed
      changing of the width is an unusable workaround, not a solution...
      (There is a reason why one would not want to make the width bigger than
      the design of the patch would allow... ;-)

      it's in the hel of jitt.cellblock under STRUCTURE subpatch
      by the way you should
      send a message called
      precision $1
      from 0 to 8
      you can also set them in the get ifo of the jitt.block object
      i know as i did it yesterday
