Hi, how can I round a double to the nearest 0.5 or 0.25 ?

e.g.

rounding to nearest 0.25:

4.08 -> 4
4.19 -> 4.25
5.55 -> 5.50
6.78 -> 6.75
6.98 -> 7

rounding to nearest 0.50:

4.08 -> 4
4.19 -> 4
5.55 -> 5.50
6.78 -> 7
6.98 -> 7

 return Math.ceil( val * 0.25d ) / 0.25f ;
and
  return Math.ceil( val * 0.5d ) / 0.5f ;

(that's for nearest .25) - change to 2.0 for nearest .5
