How do I get MatLab to format to three (3) deceimal places?

33 views (last 30 days)
This may sound like a silly question but I need to get MatLab to format real number output to three (3) decimal places. I know format bank will do two (2) decimal places and the format short G or format shortg will do decimal places to five (5) deceimal places but I only need three (3). Is there a way to get MatLab to do that?

The round function has several options, however using it will change how the numbers are represented internally, not only how they are displayed.
It might be most appropriate to usse sprintf with the '%.3f' format descriptor to do what you want.
