eval expects a string, so the number is converted to a string, and the stringification rounds a tiny bit, so it accidentally produces the right result.

    You can prepend a q before the ( to make eval work correctly, i.e. report the difference.
    $premium = eval q($number * ( 1 + 10/100 ));

[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - there isn't a Perl Day-Care at Perl events - we thought about it for YAPC::Europe 2012 but it's a gigantic effort to organize that
[marto]: Corion yeah, it'd be too costly for me to bring them both :P
