Hi Monks,

I am fetching data from a table in my sybase database using DBI module. I have a float column in my table. One of the cell value is 4632.3190000000004. When i fetch the same in my perl script. It gets rounded off to 4632.319. So i wanted to confirm the issue, i connected to the sybase database using SQL Developer and queried, i actually got 4632.319. I also connected using ASE isql and used the same query, i got the result as 4632.3190000000004. Is this any driver issue? Could you please help me and let me know if i need to change any of my DBI properties or the Perl properties so that the float value does not get rounded off. Sorry to bother you Monks. Could some one please help me. This is a bit urgent.
