Yeah, they are rounding errors. Rearranging the calculation fixes it (at least, on my platform):
sub ranges_javafan { my ($M, $N) = @_; return [ map {[int($_/$N*($M+1)) , int((($_+1)/$N)*($M+1))-1] } 0..$N - 1]; }
The most important is the final ($_+1)/$N*($M+1) - that should return $M+1 for $_ == $N-1. The impact of other rounding errors is that a range is 1 shorter than expected (but making the next one one larger - it shouldn't skip numbers).

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
