Returns the next representable double-precision floating-point value following x in the direction of y. Thus, if y is less than x, [decimal->nextafter] returns the largest representable floating-point number less than x. x is the decimal object and y is the required decimal parameter.
Decimal Object->nextafter(Decimal Value)
Use the [decimal->nextafter] method. The following examples illustrate the next numbers which can be represented when followed in two different directions, relative to the original decimal.
1.0000005->nextafter(2.0) '<br>' 1.0000005->nextafter(1.0)
