in thread Weird number formatting

Maybe I'm missing something...

What I don't get is that the addition is performed correctly despite the "D" instead of "E".
$my_x = $info[4] + 0; $my_y = $info[5] + 30; for($i = '1'; $i <= $info[2]; $i++) { print ("$my_x $my_y $info[($i + 8)]\n"); $my_y = $my_y + 30;
I would expect to see for the output:
0.22512 30.341916 661
but it actually does understand D+06 as exponential notation
Can anyone explain why?

LanX wouldn't update system Perl!
[Discipulus]: prathap keerthipati might be it is better to install an alternative Perl instead and do not touch the system one
[LanX]: see perlbrew for alternative Perl installations
[marto]: unless you know exactly what you're doing an often saner option is to simply build another Perl rather than replace the system one
