While writing a tool to deal with user quotas i ran into an issue with Number::Bytes::Human, the parser does not properly handle floating point numbers: parse(1G)= 1073741824 parse(1.5G)= 1078984704 parse(1.50G)= 1126170624 parse(1.500G)= 1598029824 parse(1.5000G)= 6316621824 tested on ubuntu 14.04.05 with libnumber-bytes-human-perl version 0.09-1. I do not have access to non-debian based distros but i suspect that this issue is not distro specific. expected outcome: the output for 1.5G, 1.50G, 1.500G 1.5000G should be the same. attached is my test script to show the problem -- Munir Nassar <nassarmu@umn.edu> Infrastructure Engineer, College of Science and Engineering University of Minnesota Key fingerprint = B033 3852 64F1 C8EF 9626 2C2F 7900 EBB3 2D44 A694

This is a duplicate for Bug #114296 and the fix has already been released as version 0.10. Nonetheless I added your invocations as additional test cases which will go into a future release: https://github.com/dago/Number-Bytes-Human/commit/093455bd969b49f10ddf3250022535c0331b4de3
