Description Utility function for formatting numbers into strings. Similar to nf(), but leaves a blank space in front of positive numbers so they align with negative numbers in spite of the minus symbol. There are two versions: one for formatting floats, and one for formatting ints. The values for the digits, left, and right parameters should always be positive integers.
Syntax
nfs(num, digits)
nfs(num, left, right)
Parameters
numthe number(s) to format
digitsint: number of digits to pad with zeroes
leftint: the number of digits to the left of the decimal point
rightint: the number of digits to the right of the decimal point
