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 function truncates,
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
`floor` and

`ceil` functions as sounder alternatives.

Still don't understand why you don't go with
moritz's solution.
