[Tutor] Decimal truncation, rounding etc.

My next project is to read a doc file and do some number editing.
I can alter numbers in the Interactive Shell OK:
from decimal import*
Decimal('7.00000').quantize(Decimal('1.000'),rounding = decimal.ROUND_DOWN)
But when I go in to IDLE, I just don't seem to be able to make this work.
A typical line of code for me to read and edit will look like:
G01 G91 X7.12345 Y7.0000 Z-0.0086
The underlines is what I need to edit, as above.
I must not understand something fundamental.
