XPath and XQuery: xs:decimal as a function

In my particular tool I can not use format-number.  

I have seen references to xs:deciaml used as a function, and it apparently is offered by my tool

Assuming I want the equivalent of the following:

format-number(123, '0.009')

Open in new window


How would I do this with xs:deciaml ?

Thanks

explain why you can't use format-number()
read: tell us more about your environment

xs:decimal casts a number to decimal if possible, but it is XPath 2.0 functionality
xs:decimal
- only works as a function in environments that also support format-number()
- does not format!, only casts

It could be that you are using some obscure subset of XQuery that does not serialize... then you need to take serialization outside the tool
