 Need Help??
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.

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:

• 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).
