I want to use the function ROUND which is described in the Help section. I cannot find a headerfile fitting to this function. Who knows how to invoke it?

I searched through all the include files in the include directory and its descendant directories and could not find it!  

You might want to look at some of the round functions provided in the SysDefs.h file in the VCL directory.

The function I am searching for is a function that rounds a double or extended variable to one digit after the decimal point.
like ROUND does, (ROUND(Value,Precision)), whose prototype I cannot find.

The following should be a good start to writting your own version.  It is not tested by should be close.  I'm not sure it handles negatives in the correct mathematical way (I can't remember the rule.)  It does not check that the precission is valid ( >0).

double RoundToInt(double x)
{
   double RetVal = floor(x);

   if (x -RetVal >= 0.5)
      RetVal = ceil(x);
   return RetVal;
}

double Round(double x,int p)
{
   double m = pow(10,p);
   
   x *= m;
   x = RoundToInt(x);
   x /= m;
   return x;
}
