# x.digits() for x decimal

Let sage: x=1416 sage: v=x.digits() sage: v.reverse(); v gives [1, 4, 1, 6] That doesn't work for x decimal, as x=3.1416 I would like to have [3, 1, 4, 1, 6] as result in a simple way.

There is no such method, but you can do the following:

```
sage: [i for i in x.str(skip_zeroes=True) if i.isdigit()]
['3', '1', '4', '1', '6']
```
