Round to n decimals?

How does one round(123.456) to 123.46?
Everything I've found so far says
returns a whole number, so round(123.45) returns 123. The languages I'm most fluent in have a
round(value, number of decimals)
function to handle this.
I expect I either haven't run across it yet or haven't looked in the right place.
FYI, I've been programming for close to 25+ years (Progress, 4GL/ABL) but new to Java. I'm hoping to complete my
in the not too distant future.

An alternative is multiply by 100, then round, then divide by 100 again.
is better (and more accurate) though.
