Ugly, but less ugly than the current setup.

In case I wasn't clear, instead of printing "-1234.5678", it should print 

It's probably simplest to turn it into a string with 4 digits to the right of 
the decimal point, then only print the first N characters of that string but 
right justify them if there are fewer than N.  I think printf can do that, 
but I'd have to look it up.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
