⎕PP - Print Precision

⎕PP Print Precision
⎕PP←'VALUE'

System Variable ⎕PP or Quad PP refers to Print Precision. In NARS, the default Print Precision is:

      ⎕PP
10

Although 10 significant digits represent the print precision or displayed precision - actual computer stored formats are quite different. Historically or customarily, ⎕PP is normally assigned a value of between 1 and 16, although with 64-bit systems, higher print precision values are available. As an example, pollution is frequently cited in PPM's or parts per million or say 1 in 1,000,000 so 5-signficant digits in the data plus 7 digits within a million base might mean ⎕PP should be set as 5+7 = 12 significant digits, or greater for higher precision printed reports. Note that print precision does NOT normally affect stored/digitized numbers, unless the numbers were first formatted/printed, then re-executed into digital floating point numbers.
