No. Don't try it with 170 but with another, carefully crafted fraction: 102/900
#!/usr/bin/perl use Math::BigFloat; Math::BigFloat->div_scale(50); my @values = map { my $i = Math::BigFloat->new( 102 ); scalar $i->bdiv( $_ ); } (900); for (@values) { /\.\d*?(\d+?)\1/; print "$_: $1\n" }
Output: 0.113333333333333333333...333: 1
