# CT_GETPREC

``` GETPREC()
Determines the level of precision that is set
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Returns

GETPREC() returns the level of precision currently installed for
Clipper Tools trigonometric functions.  The value corresponds to the
number of digits to the right of the decimal in the range of 1 to 16.

Description

GET PRECISION
GETPREC() queries the currently installed precision level for Clipper
Tools trigonometric functions.  The returned value corresponds to the
number of digits to the right of the decimal, that are being worked
with.  Although the default is 16, you can change this value with
SETPREC().

Example

What precision has been set?

? GETPREC()      //  e.g. 10```
