Well, I'm getting the number from the DB, and then multiplying it against another number, modifying the other number. And then I'm displaying the number.

It was treated as a number at some point in its history, even though I'm displaying it as a string and not really doing any math to it when I display it.

Anyway, its all been resolved. At some point it is being converted to a single and Perl assumes those digits are significant. If I could pull the double from the DB and use it as a double I would be happy, but even if it is set as a double, it still becomes a single.
