Great! Also, drive courteously and eat your vegetables.

:) I think you see the problem. Everything you describe and call for is great but human beings--generalizing here, of course--can't typically be bothered to do the right thing when it requires effort or forethought unless there is a catchy slogan or something behind it. I hereby nominate you for lead of the ITLP. If the peer pressure isn't working and you find you need enforcers, I have an airsoft pistol and dead-eye.

    Also, keep moistened towelettes (like diaper wipes) in the car, as butter on the steering wheel can be a safety problem.

[pryrt]: 1nickt, sprintf "%.16e", $v will always give enough precision to see 1 ULP (the smallest fractional part) of a standard 64bit Perl NV*
[pryrt]: (*: for systems where $Config{nvsize}==8 )
[pryrt]: Thus, that's "enough precision" to tell the difference between 1.0 and 1.0+1ULP
[pryrt]: But in what circumstance does your problem arise? When, in Perl, does the integer 1 not work identically to the floating-point NV 1.0000000000000000 e0?
