in reply to convert output from exponentional notation to normal

Bignum will probably do what you want with minimum fuss.

use 5.012; use bignum; say 1/18690250981623985612839659816239856; __END__ Output: 0.00000000000000000000000000000000005350382940192655191511204088952992 +471243

You will probably want to read up on bignum for options on how to control accuracy and precision (more info in the related Math::BigInt). These libraries support arbitrary precision, within the limits of available memory, that is.
