ios manipulators showpoint() function in C++
  • Last Updated : 28 Aug, 2019

The showpoint() method of stream manipulators in C++ is used to set the showpoint format flag for the specified str stream. This flag always displays the floating point values along with their decimal values.

Syntax:

ios_base& showpoint (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 showpoint format flag set.

Example 1:






// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of showpoint() function
  
#include <iostream>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
  
    // Initializing the floating values
    double n1 = 10;
    double n2 = 20.0;
  
    cout.precision(5);
  
    // Using showpoint()
    cout << "showpoint flag: "
         << showpoint
         << n1 << endl
         << n2 << endl;
  
    return 0;
}
Output:
showpoint flag: 10.000
20.000

Example 2:




// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of showpoint() function
  
#include <iostream>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
  
    // Initializing the floating values
    double n3 = 30.1223;
  
    cout.precision(5);
  
    // Using showpoint()
    cout << "showpoint flag: "
         << showpoint
         << n3 << endl;
  
    return 0;
}
Output:
showpoint flag: 30.122
