Strange response

  1. Dec 7, 2014 #1
    I have tried to use the intrinsic' fraction' function in Fortran but have failed to understand how it works. I thought that it would return the fractional part of a real number, but when I ran a few numbers through it, I got something that was a far cry from what I expected. For example, I tried fraction(10.0) and got 0.625. Can you tell me what's wrong?
