Hi,

   I'm not sure where to get an answer to this question.  Say I want
to see an integer printed out, but I don't want the e in the middle of
my number.

1> io:format("~w~n", [1000000 / 2]).
5.0e5
ok

How can I get 500000?  I've looked at the documentation and couldn't
find anything that would give me the whole number without e.  Did I
miss something?
