Subject [jira] [Created] (TEXT-57) Formatting numbers
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2017 12:13:58 GMT
Gilles created TEXT-57:
--------------------------

             Summary: Formatting numbers
                 Key: TEXT-57
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TEXT-57
             Project: Commons Text
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Gilles
            Priority: Minor


"Commons Math" contains formatting classes whose purpose are to beautify the printout of such
objects as "complex number" and "matrix" instances.

I suggest that such functionality would be a better fit for "Commons Text".

Rationale is that it is an endeavour unto itself rather than something which other components
can easily implement themselves, aside from their "core business".

As an example, in "Commons Math", there was an issue in that fixed precision was maintained
in numbers close to 0, leading to meaningless error messages.
