Personally, I prefer names "round_cast/trunc_cast", as they better describe
what's being done. I already use a function "round_to", that does something
else:
template < class T >
T round_to( const T& x, const T& order )
{
return round( x / order ) * order; // By the way, can this
be achieved more efficiently?
}
I'm not sure if "round_to" is the best name for this, but I think it is not
the right name for "round_cast" ;)
