7 _batch_api_percentage($total, $current)

Helper function for _batch_process(): returns the formatted percentage.


$total: The total number of operations.

$current: The number of the current operation. This may be a floating point number rather than an integer in the case of a multi-step operation that is not yet complete; in that case, the fractional part of $current represents the fraction of the operation that has been completed.

Return value

The properly formatted percentage, as a string. We output percentages using the correct number of decimal places so that we never print "100%" until we are finished, but we also never print more decimal places than are meaningful.

      // may be erroneously rounded up to 100%. To prevent that, we add one
      // more decimal place and try again.
