18.104.22.168 paragraph 9 claims that setprecision() sets the precision,
and includes a parenthetical note saying that it is the number of
digits after the decimal point.
This claim is not strictly correct. For example, in the default floating-point output format, setprecision sets the number of significant digits printed, not the number of digits after the decimal point.
I would like the committee to look at the definition carefully and correct the statement in 22.214.171.124
Remove from 126.96.36.199 [fmtflags.state], paragraph 9, the text "(number of digits after the decimal point)".
