NInt(A)

NInt: `INTEGER(KIND=1)`

function.

`A`: `REAL`

; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Intrinsic groups: (standard FORTRAN 77).

Description:

Returns `A` with the fractional portion of its
magnitude eliminated by rounding to the nearest whole
number and with its sign preserved, converted
to type `INTEGER(KIND=1)`

.

If `A` is type `COMPLEX`

, its real part is
rounded and converted.

A fractional portion exactly equal to
``.5`' is rounded to the whole number that
is larger in magnitude.
(Also called “Fortran round”.)

See Int Intrinsic, for how to convert, truncate to whole number.

See ANInt Intrinsic, for how to round to nearest whole number without converting.
