( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
You'll need to provide more info if you want help. I'm assuming this is a portion of a database schema. Most databases I know of use DECIMAL, not FIXED. Whatever database you are using should have documentation somewhere about internal data format. How you're retrieving this info, and what the documentation says about how it returns data would be your next step

    [Corion]: 5.14 is also a good target, widely available and fairly stable. Also, over five years old, which doesn't push people into a needless upgrade cycle
    [Discipulus]: yes I saw your efforts Corion but the pain is worth?
    [Corion]: Discipulus: IMO it's not that much pain, but most of the systems I use have a Perl 5.14 or newer on them nowadays
    [marto]: the question is more, is Padre still the way new users should be directed?
    [Discipulus]: ah ah I have all 5.26 atm but I play alone..
    [Corion]: Except this RHEL box, which comes with Perl 5.10.1 , but there I installed my own 5.20.3 for the real Perl programs we run ;)
    [Corion]: marto: I used Padre for some time but then switched to Notepad++, since all the funky features I wanted to put into Padre couldn't be made to work, and/or I lost interest :)
    [Discipulus]: indeed marto I dunno. I tested once and many years ago. But I'm not the programmer yardstick. I try to install Padre via cpan now just to add a line about it in the issue. Strawberryperl all life long!
    [marto]: yeah, when I worked on Windows I did use Np++ all the time
