significant figures fix ave/time

Greetings LAMMPS community,

I am trying to average various values over time, and am finding that I need a greater precision with regards to significant figures. In the thermo style, 8 sig figs are output, but in the ave/time output, 6 sig figs. Why is this not coherent? How can I change the output in the fix ave/time command? Thank you.

For the thermo output you can set the precision
yourself, via the thermo_modify format command.

For fix ave/time there is no such option. It would
have to be added. You can simply look
in fix_ave_time.cpp and find the fprintf statement
that writes to a file and change the precision directly.
