Easier way for rounding several values?

Recommended Posts

I am sure there is an easier way to do this but I don't yet know how to do it.  Is there a way I can perform the round function to the following:

[code]//First we round the values to get sig figs. We don't round the first value since its the NPS
$sigfig="2"; /number of decimal values
$col2=round($col2,$sigfig);
$col3=round($col3,$sigfig);
$col4=round($col4,$sigfig);
$col5=round($col5,$sigfig);
$col6=round($col6,$sigfig);
$col7=round($col7,$sigfig);
$col8=round($col8,$sigfig);
$col9=round($col9,$sigfig);
$col10=round($col10,$sigfig);
$col11=round($col11,$sigfig);
$col12=round($col12,$sigfig);
$col13=round($col13,$sigfig);
$col14=round($col14,$sigfig);
$col15=round($col15,$sigfig);[/code]

This gets tedious to write over and over. . . maybe I could use a For function?

[code]
$sigfig = 2;

for ($i = 2; $i < 15; $i ++) //  use a bigger number if 15 is too small
{
    $var  = "col$i";                        // store the working var name col2, col3, etc...
    $$var = round($$var, $sigfig); // set and round the variable named 'col2', 'col3', etc...
}
[/code]

You also may want to change your code to use an array instead of many variables:
[code]<?php
//First we round the values to get sig figs. We don't round the first value since its the NPS
$sigfig=2; //number of decimal values 
for($i=2;$i<count($col);$i++)
    $col[$i] = round($col[$i],$sigfig);
?>[/code]

Unecessary with the use of array_walk():

[code]<?php

$array = array(1.111,2.222,3.333);

array_walk($array, create_function('&$a,$b,$c', '$a = round($a, $c);'), 2);

var_dump($array);

?>[/code]
