I am not sure where ASP, came from.
These are all native functions of most Numeric Processors.
My suggestion was just that, a suggestion.
It allows for completionof functions that I thought would be easy to implemented.

PHP is not to my knowledge ASP.  This is won't (shouldn't)
be added anytime soon...

Not sure what you are asking for here.
round() exists
Modulus exists with the modulus operator.  ie. echo 3%2;
ceil() exists
floor() exists
Division obviously exists
Trunc sort of exists: echo (int)10.57;
Frac can be derived as well.  But I suppose that is the one you are asking for a 
native function for?

There are a set of four math function that convert real numbers to integers, trunc is 
missing.  Other functions of use are Frac, Mod, Div.

Round: return closest integer to argument, if fractional is .5 then return closest 
even integer.

Ceiling: return smallest integer greater than or equal to argument

Floor: return largest integer less than or equal to argument

Trunc: if argument is positive, return floor of argument, otherwise return ceiling of 

Frac: return abs(argument - trunc(argument))

Mod: returns remainder of the division of two arguments

Div: returns quotiant of the division of two arguments

(I ran into this problem when converting a decimal number to an IP number.)
