( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

G'day rkd257,

Welcome to the Monastery.

"... thought I would end up with 5 and 7 ... ## $cf = 7/12 ..."

So, I think you should have been expecting 7 and 12. If not, please explain why 5 and 7?

Anyway, I think you want bigrat; not Math::BigRat and bignum. (All three are core modules.)

$ perl -e ' use bigrat; my $cf = 1 - 1/6 - 1/4; my $n = $cf->numerator(); my $d = $cf->denominator(); print "$cf\n"; print " $n\n"; print " $d\n"; ' 7/12 7 12

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
