double to String in c++ linux

I want to convert double to string in C++(linux) I know that there is  _ecvt function,
but for only interger that means if I have 10.5 the out put will be 10 only and also I must specifiy the long of number(how many digit)
void main()
      {
         double test=4.125;
         double test;
         char *result;
         int decimalpt, sign;
         cout<<" Enter a number : " ;
         cin>>test;
          printf ("\n Input was %g \n", test);
                 // so here I must menstion 3
         result = _ecvt(test, 3, &decimalpt, &sign);
        
         printf (" \n Result string is '%s'\n", result);
           */
         // strFinalVal contains 4.125
      }
what I want I only want to convert from double to string in any way.
Thank You

why don't you use sprintf?
sprintf(result,"%5lf",test);

Ok... I would say using sprintf.
spritnf(string,"%lf",double_number);
Should do the trick....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

use this

double value = 4.125;
char str[10];
sprintf(str, "%.4f", value);

try with


      /**
      * Converts a double into a string with n decimal characters.
      * @param d The double to convert.
      * @param n The number of digits to the right of the decimal point.
      * @return Thr resulting string.
      */
      std::string doubleToString( double d, int decimals )
      {
            std::stringstream ss;

            ss.precision( decimals );            // set precision
            ss.setf( std::ios::fixed );     // get rid off the scientific notation

            ss << d;
            return ss.str ();
      }

Hope this helps

I like to use the following template function, that converts all streamable types to strings:

template<typename T> string toString(const T& source)
{
  ostringstream oss;
  oss << source;
  return oss.str();
}

Then, for floats, you can do:
string s = toString(5.4);

But it would also work for ints, bools, etc.
The opposite conversion is simliar.
