This is a basic Math question, I think :-) Any help really appreciated. I can't get the following to balance i.e. the total of all line_items ($unconverted_amount) once converted is different to the converted invoice total. Is there a solution? Maybe I don't need Math::BigFloat. The amounts are all in pennies.
sub convert { use Math::BigFloat; my %currency_conv_hash = (IEP=>"EUR",GBP=>"GBP",USD=>"USD",EUR=>"EUR", FFR=>"EUR", NLG=>"EUR", ESP=>"EUR", DEM=>"EUR", ITL=>"EUR", ATS=>"EUR" +, BEF=>"EUR", PTE=>"EUR" ); my %rate_hash = (IEP=>".787564",GBP=>"1",USD=>"1",EUR=>"1", FFR=>"6.55 +957",NLG=>"2.20371", ESP=>"166.386", DEM=>"1.95583", ITL=>"1936.27", +ATS=>"13.7603", BEF=>"16.11", PTE=>"200.482" ); my($source_currency, $unconverted_amount, $unconverted_total_amount) = + @_; my $rate=$rate_hash{$source_currency}; my $line_amount = Math::BigFloat->new($unconverted_amount/$rat +e); my $total_amount = Math::BigFloat->new($unconverted_total_amount +/$rate); return ($currency_conv_hash{$source_currency}, (sprintf "%.0f",$line_ +amount->fround(0)), (sprintf "%.0f",$total_amount->fround(0)) ); } Now when I later total all the line amounts i.e. what is returned by s +printf "%.0f",$line_amount>fround(0)), the total is out by a penny or + so when compared to (sprintf "%.0f",$total_amount->fround(0))
Any assistance hugely appreciated.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
