Hello, I must be missing something obvious. I have  a 8x4 matrix, the first
column is
             0              1              2              3              4 
  9.470986e-01   5.147677e-02   1.398934e-03   2.534499e-05   3.443882e-07 
   more than 4 nominal payoff     exp.payoff 
  3.777820e-09   2.000000e+06   1.972907e+06 

I would like to have it printed such that all all numbers bigger than 1e-4
are not printed in scientific notation.
I thought that format(table.result) would do this job, but it seems not to
apply the scientific setting to each individual element.
How do I get thes enumbers printed as 

0.9471 0.05148 0.001399 2.534e-05, etc? Is it also possible to print 10-5
instead of e-5?
Thanks, Ruud
