I'm puzzled by the output I get from
SetAccuracy. According to the documentation, when
SetAccuracy is used to increase the accuracy of a number, the number is padded with zeros.
But, let's take a look at a couple of examples:
SetAccuracy[1.2, 5] (* 1.2000 *) SetAccuracy[1., 5] (* 1.0000 *) SetAccuracy[0.2, 5] (* 0.2000 *)
These examples seem to work properly, so why does it behave differently in this case?
SetAccuracy[0., 5] (* 0.*10^-5 *)
What should I do to get a zero with four trailing zeros?
I'm asking this question, because I need to export data to a txt file and I would like to avoid having
0.*10^-5 sort of numbers.
