Q&A > math > How do I round a number? contributed by buckaduck

For scientific applications requiring the use of significant figures ("sig figs"), I strongly recommend the Math::SigFigs module. Unfortunately, the CPAN testers still haven't cleared it for Windows clients, though...
use Math::SigFigs; print FormatSigFigs($number, $digits);
