Python: Configure the rounding to round to the nearest - with ties going towards 0, with ties going away from 0

Python module: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to configure the rounding to round to the nearest - with ties going towards 0, with ties going away from 0. Use decimal.ROUND_HALF_DOWN, decimal.ROUND_HALF_UP

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import decimal
print("Configure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going towards 0:")
decimal.getcontext().prec = 1
decimal.getcontext().rounding = decimal.ROUND_HALF_DOWN
print(decimal.Decimal(10) / decimal.Decimal(4))
print("\nConfigure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going away from 0:")
decimal.getcontext().prec = 1
decimal.getcontext().rounding = decimal.ROUND_HALF_UP
print(decimal.Decimal(10) / decimal.Decimal(4))

Sample Output:

Configure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going towards 0:
2

Configure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going away from 0:
3

Python: Tips of the Day

For-else construct useful when searched for something and find it:

# For example assume that I need to search through a list and process each item until a flag item is found and 
# then stop processing. If the flag item is missing then an exception needs to be raised.

for i in mylist:
    if i == theflag:
        break
    process(i)
else:
    raise ValueError("List argument missing terminal flag.")
