ceil : Java Glossary


To take a float or double and want the corresponding integer (possibly as a float, double, int or long) there are four basic algorithms you might use: round, ceil, floor or truncate. With ceil (ceiling), numbers are always rounded up to the next integer. Use Math.ceil and the description of covered quotient division.
