strncpy(strPrincipal,FileBuffer+99,11);
int intPrincipal ;
intPrincipal = atoi(strPrincipal);
setprecision(2);
dblPrincipal = intPrincipal*(1/100.0);

Actually I am trying to set the format 999999999.99
total 11. I am copying into the char array strPrincipal.
now I want to set this value to the above format .

Can any one rectify my code

Thanks in advance.

It's not at all clear to me what you are trying to do.  You code doesn't shed much light on this for me either.

Perhaps a better explanation regarding what you are trying to do.

Also:

strncpy(strPrincipal,FileBuffer+99,11);

The above line of code is VERY DANGEROUS.  Note that strncpy does NOT terminate your string.  Depending on what is already in strPrincipal your results could be indeterminate or even disastrous.  If you must use such a thing, I'd suggest:

memset(strPrincipal, 0, 12);
strncpy(strPrincipal,FileBuffer+99,11);

The following code will put the dblPrincipal number into the data string, and use the format you specified above.
char data[20];
sprintf(data,"%i9.2",dblPricipal);

When using sprintf/printf you can specify the format by putting a decimal in between the % and the type.
Then put the number of digits you want to the left and right of the decimal in the associated positions.
