I solved my issue with adding and subtracting 1 from the returned value
Sorry, but that's a terrible "solution".
Your example floating point
inaccuracy happens to be slightly greater than three.
Since the int
consider what happens if the inaccuracy happens
to be slightly less than three.
Though a crude fix would be to
add 0.5 (i.e. int($l+0.5)
instead of int($l)
the perl documentation advises against using int
for rounding and suggests sprintf
and the POSIX
functions as sounder alternatives.
Still don't understand why you don't go with
