Truncating a real number

How would I truncate all the decimals so then I could just have the whole number.
ex:
1.3->1
1.9->1
2.5->2
2.3->2
23.5->23
Now matter how big the decimal is, I just want the whole number.
Round() doesn't work here. Or would I have to make an algorithm to do it?

I think u can use floor. like
 code: put floor (1.3)

simple no?

 code: put floor(2.56) put 2.56 div 1

Either works. Personal preference.
