in thread Zero Padding to the Right of the Decimal

Just one more thing, how about this:

printf( "%3.2f\n" , ($i + 0.01) );

Instead of the two lines above?



($_='kkvvttuubbooppuuiiffssqqffssmmiibbddllffss')
=~y~b-v~a-z~s; print

    you'll never exit the loop that way, because you never modify $i.
    You could use +=, though :
    my $i=0; while ($i <=100){ printf("%3.2f\n",$i+=0.01); }

      This thread is probably already too deep for anyone to care, but if I were doing this, I would do so thusly:

          printf "%3.2f\n", $_/100 for 0 .. 100*100;

        printf( "%3.2f\n" , ($i + 0.01)  );

    doesn't work.

    Change to:

        printf( "%3.2f\n" , ($i += 0.01)  );
