pub trait LowerExp {
    fn fmt(&self, f: &mut Formatter<'_>) -> Result<(), Error>;
}
Expand description

e formatting.

The LowerExp trait should format its output in scientific notation with a lower-case e.

For more information on formatters, see the module-level documentation.

Examples

Basic usage with f64:

let x = 42.0; // 42.0 is '4.2e1' in scientific notation

assert_eq!(format!("{x:e}"), "4.2e1");

Implementing LowerExp on a type:

use std::fmt;

struct Length(i32);

impl fmt::LowerExp for Length {
    fn fmt(&self, f: &mut fmt::Formatter<'_>) -> fmt::Result {
        let val = f64::from(self.0);
        fmt::LowerExp::fmt(&val, f) // delegate to f64's implementation
    }
}

let l = Length(100);

assert_eq!(
    format!("l in scientific notation is: {l:e}"),
    "l in scientific notation is: 1e2"
);

assert_eq!(
    format!("l in scientific notation is: {l:05e}"),
    "l in scientific notation is: 001e2"
);

Required methods

Formats the value using the given formatter.
