floor : Java Glossary


To take a float or double and want the corresponding integer (possibly as a float, double, int or long) there are four basic algorithms you might use: round, ceil, floor or truncate. With floor, numbers are always rounded down to the next lowest integer. Use Math.floor and floored division.
