in reply to machine accuracy

I'm being a bit quick off the mark and should probably wait to see what other people make of your question, but could you point out what your question is please?

You say "please tell me if my assumption are nuts", but I can't work out what your assumption are:)

    i'll clarify my question:
    is the number that the one-liner above is printing relevant for the accuracy of perl calculations?
    or i'm i completly wrong in assuming that number as important for numerical calculations in perl?
