Hi guys,

What it means the pipes in this case?

Also the number 2 means that im capable to have only 2 numbers before the point ?

And the 4 means four numbers after the point ?




Thank You

Regards,

Did you try to run it?
Pipes are part of the string printed to standard output, they have nothing to do with format of the number printed.

Exactly what it looks like.

No, it means "at least 2 numbers before the point" - and don't forget that this is a formatting specification.

And the 4 means four numbers after the point ?

Yup.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
