Description Marko Elezovic 2014-11-10 17:57:08 UTC
When running Mono 3.10.0 on Debian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy), we're experiencing .NET/mono inconsistencies in the way decimals are formatted.

When considering ...

    Console.Out.WriteLine(45m / 100);

In .NET, the output is the same:

When running against Mono JIT compiler version 3.10.0 (tarball Sat Oct  4 11:47:31 UTC 2014), this will produce:


This, it is currently necessary for us to manually trim the unwanted zeroes in mono runtime.

-> corlib.
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2015-01-13 05:42:51 UTC
-> runtime

using System;

class App
	public static void Main ()
		decimal dd = 45m;
		var x = dd / 100;
		var bits = decimal.GetBits (x);
		var flags = (uint) bits[3];
		byte scale2 = (byte)(flags >> 16);

		Console.WriteLine (scale2);

Print 28 on mono and 2 on .net

Fixed with the new Decimal code.
