Try to craft this solution to your needs -- it reliably parses floating point, change that to integer.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Config; # check architecture and die if not as expected $Config{nvtype} eq "double" && $Config{doublesize} == 8 && $Config{ivtype} eq "long" && $Config{longsize} == 8 or die "not compatibile perl"; my $a = "-000123.456000"; # format good or die $a =~ /\G([-+]?(?=[0-9]|\.[0-9])[0-9]*(\.[0-9]*)?)/gc or die "not a nu +mber"; my $n = $1; # max length is 15, because architecure is such... convert string to n +umber length $n <= 15 + 2 or die "number too long"; $n = 0 + $n; # check if number fits within 15 digits abs $n > 99999999999999.9 and die "number out of range"; print "$a ---> $n is OK\n"; .... root@orion:~# perl /tmp/aaaa -000123.456000 ---> -123.456 is OK

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
