let me try to explain.
your 48 only knows about "Real" numbers, it does not know "integers" (unless you are talking about binary integers like #12ABCh, but that is another issue).
the 48 displays real that have no fractional part without a decimal point.
the 50g has an integer type and a real type. reals ALWAYS have a decimal point, even if they have no fractional part.
now, the IP function takes a real and removes it's fractional part, leaving only the integer part, but still return a real (for example, 12.123131231E14 will return the same number).
to transform a real in an integer, you would need to use the R->I function that does that. but this is different from the IP fnction.
hope that it helps.

Thanks for your input (well stated). I modified my program and added the Real to Integer function and solved my display problem (no more decimal point).
