ios manipulators dec() function in C++
  • Last Updated : 02 Sep, 2019

The dec() method of stream manipulators in C++ is used to set the baseline format flag for the specified str stream. This flag sets the baseline for Decimal numbers. Hence the output shows the number in Decimal base.

Syntax:

ios_base& dec (ios_base& str)

Parameters: This method accepts str as a parameter which is the stream for which the format flag is affected.

Return Value: This method returns the stream str with internal format flag set.

Example 1:






// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of dec() function
  
#include <iostream>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
  
    // Initializing the number
    int n = 321;
  
    // Using dec()
    cout << "dec flag: "
         << dec << n << endl;
  
    return 0;
}


Output:

dec flag: 321

Example 2:




// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of dec() function
  
#include <iostream>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
  
    // Initializing the number
    int n = -321;
  
    // Using dec()
    cout << "dec flag: "
         << dec << n << endl;
  
    return 0;
}


Output:

dec flag: -321
