This is the wrong way to handle $ms !!

It will fail unless there are 6 significant digits!

$err = ( $ms < 100000 ? 'wrong' : '' ); printf "Seconds since epoch (float): %.6f\n", $sec; # $sec is a float, print it like that... printf "Seconds since epoch (list): %d.%d $err\n", $s, $ms; printf "Seconds since epoch (float): %.6f $err\n", $float_t;
Seconds since epocg (float): 1349360875.006262 Seconds since epoch (list): 1349360875.6267 wrong Seconds since epoch (float): 1349360875.626700 wrong
