in thread [OT: JavaScript] JS remainder operation ('%')

Wouldn't it be better to s/perl/print/g here?

That would be better. (Some might even argue that "perl's interpolation" would be the more strictly accurate replacement - since all print() does is to output what perl has interpolated ... but that sort of thinking is way too moot for me to understand ;-)

IMHO your statement is misleading as it is, because it's limited to output by print and doesn't effect internal representation.

I don't quite follow that. The only problem is the print function (or perl's interpolation of NV's or whatever we should call it).
There's no issue with perl's internal representation of doubles, since 5.30.0.
