Jack,

Check pages 959 and 960 in Section 3.10.4 of The Mathematica Book. You can
use LeftFloor and RightFloor as bracketing operators, which in turn are
intrepreted as Floor.

\[LeftFloor] 3.2 \[RightFloor]
3

These can also be entered as esc-lf-esc and esc-rf-esc.

Hi Group!

A commonly used symbol for the Floor function is a square bracket with the
upper indents removed.  Is this symbol part of Mathematica's built-in
symbols?  I
think not, so then, can it be constructed "by hand".

Jack
