(Note: I think this is already on the wishlist. See "TODO" in the dist)

Correct, this will work. However, as an addition, if you want to print
the *real* values you should use another CDEF when printing.
If not, your printed values will also be clipped and any calculations
could go wrong.

Example for 10mbit ethernet and 1kbit clip value:
(from memory so perhaps a little typo somewhere)

   GPRINT:inb1:MAX:"Max. %6.2lf %Sbps"
   GPRINT:inb1:MIN:"Min. %6.2lf %Sbps"
