Math::SigDig version 1.0 ======================== SigDig.pm Version 1.0 What is it? ----------- Math::SigDig is a module that provides methods to round a number to a specified number of significant digits and count the number of significant digits. It allows you to edit numbers to a significant number of digits (whether they include a decimal point or not). In scientific endeavors, the number of digits that are "significant" in the result of a calculation using 2 numbers is frequently the number of significant digits in the number with the least number of significant digits (e.g. 2.0 * 232.12 = 464.24, where 464.24 is reduced to 2 significant digits: 460).
