    It probably is not possible to predict the results in every case. Consider these two runs of your function. Only the second replicates your original problem.
    use strict; use warnings; no warnings 'experimental::signatures'; use feature 'signatures'; sub amnt($amn) { my $amount=$_[0]; print "$amount i m checking amount before padding,\n"; my $padamnt = sprintf("%016d",$amount); print "$padamnt i m checking amount after padding,\n"; return $padamnt; } print "EXACT integer\n"; amnt(488715); print "\n\nNot quite an integer\n"; amnt(488715 - 4e-10);

    OUTPUT:

    EXACT integer 488715 i m checking amount before padding, 0000000000488715 i m checking amount after padding, Not quite an integer 488715 i m checking amount before padding, 0000000000488714 i m checking amount after padding,
