This is a bug report for perl from bk@starlink.ru,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.10.1.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

I'm using the current version of Perl for CentOS el6 (5.10.1).

After moving to x64 architecture the behaviour of sprintf has been changed.

On this platform (x86) the output is like the following:

# perl -e 'printf("%.2f", 6.685);'
6.68

But on the other (x64) platform I got this:

# perl -e 'printf("%.2f", 6.685);'
6.69

I concatenated the output of perlbug from the x64 platform:


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  BEGIN x64  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
