I'm working on a fairly simple screen saver and I'm storing a bunch of the data in alterable values to make things a bit easier. Here's the problem:

I need to divide a circumference by 100, and I need to store that in an alterable value. My set circumference is 350, and 350 / 100 = 3.5. The problem is that alterable values, as far as I know, can't contain decimals, so I can't store 3.5 in an alterable value. Why is that, and how can I get around it? But please, no counters.

Thanks in advance!

They can if you force it to use decimals. Use circumference/100.0 and it should work. Having to use decimals in the expression makes it give decimals in the result.

@Jon: Thanks, man. I'll definitely try that method. I just figured out another way: Alterable Strings and then converting them to numbers. It works, but it's overly complicated.

@Phredreeke: Faster than an African/European Velociraptor Crumpet. On fire.
