Hello everyone,

I have a simple function that displays the integer part of a real number if the fraction part is less than a millionth.

	dropDecimal[x_] := If[FractionalPart[x] < .000001, IntegerPart[x], x]

In trying to learn more about functional programming, I was wondering whether there is a way to put the condition or test on the right-hand side of the 
function.

Gregory
