in reply to Converting Float to SN notation

Check out the docs for sprintf (or perldoc -f sprintf), as a quick example it could be done like: @nums = qw(3447.097333 0.5); print sprintf("%e", $_), "\n" for @nums

    Thanks...that works great...I just had to adjust the precision: print sprintf("%.10e", $_), "\n" for @nums and it works perfectly.

    Thanks again
