comment Delayed evaluation of assignment
Richard, I am not really familiar with the "macro" functionality to which you refer but metaprogramming is certainly possible. In fact the Accepted answer to this Question does what I think you describe: it assembles assignments and passes them to Block.

comment Is the divergence between Round and setting an explicit precision intentional or a bug?
@MichaelE2 Surely it is not a duplicate. Rather I hope that the old question could be edited to include both (all) issues, making it a "canonical reference" for rounding-method-issues in Mathematica. I would appreciate your help with the necessary editing if you feel this is a reasonable goal.

Michael, I would like to merge this question with (29122) if possible. Do you feel that this is reasonable?

@David Why did you start using N instead of the provided f? That's the point of this Q&A isn't it?

comment Permanently rounding numbers/values to a given number of significant figures
@David What am I missing here? Who said anything about "all digits" before this? 3.14`3. does not have dozens of of digits?! If you want three digits of precision you must use this input form, otherwise the number is interpreted as machine precision.

comment Permanently rounding numbers/values to a given number of significant figures
@David Well yes, that's necessary for meaningful use within Mathematica. If you copy to an external application you should get only 3.14. You can use Copy As Plain Text to get the same result within Mathematica. However you of course loose the precision setting this way and the numbers return to machine precision.

comment Permanently rounding numbers/values to a given number of significant figures
@George You seem to be confused regarding output formatting. By using f[%, 3] you have set three digits of precision on that output. Why would Mathematica print more than 1.01 in this case? The FullForm is still 1.005`3. however. The only reason that 1.005 is printed in the first case is that 0.5 is a machine precision number therefore precision tracking is lost. Your expectations seem perplexing. What are you actually trying to accomplish?

@David When are you getting (back)tick marks? I do not see these on copy and paste of the plain output.

Simon, as a community elected moderator I believe I am able to change your user name. If you tell me what you would like I shall attempt it.

Simon, would you consider using a variation of your user name? We have a member of three years using the same name, and though he isn't as active recently it still confuses me when I see you post or comment. (This is merely a suggestion; you are not required to take action.)
