Good point, I see what you mean. I would expect 12.3456 but because of floa=
t imprecision we get 12.3454 using the above formula. Of course that's the =
gotcha with *any* float operations. Maybe I should have said *logically equ=
ivalent* to ((num / step.to_f).round * step)

There are implementation workarounds, e.g.

``` ruby
(12.3456 / 0.0002).next_float.floor * 0.0002  #=3D>12.345600000000001
(12.3456 / 0.0002)           .round * 0.0002  #=3D>12.345600000000001
(12.3456 / 0.0002).prev_float.ceil  * 0.0002  #=3D>12.345600000000001
```

Or the new, magical `fix_float` method! :-)  (half-jesting)
``` ruby
class Float
  def fix_float(sensitivity=3D6)
    n =3D next_float
    return n if n.to_s.size < self.to_s.size - sensitivity
    p =3D prev_float
    return p if p.to_s.size < self.to_s.size - sensitivity
    return self
  end
end

(12.3456 / 0.0002)                                       #=3D> 61727.999999=
99999
(12.3456 / 0.0002).fix_float                             #=3D> 61728.0
((12.3456 / 0.0002).fix_float.floor * 0.0002).fix_float  #=3D>12.3456
```


----------------------------------------
Feature #16021: floor/ceil/round/truncate should accept a :step argument

----------------------------------------
These rounding methods currently accept a number of (decimal) digits, but a=
 more general mechanism would allow rounding to the nearest =BC, multiple o=
f 5, etc.
Equivalent to e.g. `((num / step.to_f).round * step)`

``` ruby
12.3456.floor(step: 0.2) #=3D> 12.2
12.3456.round(step: 0.2) #=3D> 12.4
12.3456.floor(step: 0.2) #=3D> 12.4
12.3456.floor(step: 0.2) #=3D> 12.2
```

IMHO this should also apply to Time#floor/round/ceil

``` ruby
Time.now.floor(step: 3600) #=3D> current hour
Time.now.round(step: 3600) #=3D> nearest hour
Time.now.ceil(step: 3600)  #=3D> next hour
```

We can also consider that instead of `:step` , `:by` might be quite readabl=
e.

``` ruby
12.3456.round(by: 0.2) #=3D> 12.4
```
