# Ignore $MinPrecision when using Print I have a function that contains a For loop and sometimes takes several hours to run. It's important that I keep a high precision, and I insert Print statements throughout to check the status. Here is a simplified example: f[x_] := Block[{$MinPrecision = 500},
For[i = 0, i < x, i++;
y = i/2;
Print[N[y, 10]]
];
];


Is there a way to ignore or suppress \$MinPrecision when Print is used? I'd like to make the printed output easier to read.

Use NumberForm[y, 10] –  Apple Mar 26 '14 at 15:26
