Exponential to decimal

Is there any function in SAS DI to convert exponential to decimal number.

Actually i am getting the source value as '5.88843359999E-2'.

I need to convert this to '0.0588'.

I am using SAS DI 4.2.KIndly help me to resolve this.

Convert or display? To display the value in decimal format, specify the 6.4 format. For example:

format x 6.4;

For more information, see SAS(R) 9.4 Formats and Informats: Reference
