in reply to Scientific Notation Throws Off Results.

bl0rf said it: don't stringify things that you don't actually need as strings. The "number of digits" needs no stringification, it's a logarithm:

sub number_of_digits { my $number = shift; my $base = shift || 10; 1 + int( log($number) / log($base) ) }
