The built-in functions include round, floor, ceil, and trunc. Trunc rounds towards zero. For floats, the behavior of trunc is equivalent to the following:

``````float func trunc(float x)
if x >= 0
return floor(x)
else
return ceil(x)
endif
endfunc
``````

There is no equivalent function with < instead of >. In mathematics, I haven't even found a name for this. The best name that I could come up is "elong", a shortened version of elongate, as truncate is short for truncate.

I think we almost never have a need for it?

Yes, rarely, only in one of the Gaussian Integer coloring formulas or something similar.
