|I = INT(IRDX)||converts to integer by truncation.|
|R = REAL(IRDX)||converts to real.|
|D = DBLE(IRDX)||converts to double precision.|
|X = CMPLX(IRDX)||converts to complex.|
|X = CMPLX(IRD,IRD)||converts to complex.|
The integer conversion of INT rounds towards zero; if you need to round to the nearest integer use the NINT function (described below). The CMPLX function produces a value with a zero imaginary component unless it is used with two arguments (or one which is already complex). It is important to realise that many conversions lose information: in particular a double precision value is likely to lose significant digits if converted to any other data type.
