With recent debian i386 perl 5.12.4 and its Math::BigInt 1.993, it seems int($x) > $x is true for a positive BigFloat, where I expected it to be false, since int() rounds towards zero. Eg. below. I see int() gives a BigInt but a comparision "BigInt > BigFloat" apparently doesn't like a fraction part in the second arg. Maybe it could notice a BigFloat there for maximum inter-operation.

use strict; use Math::BigFloat; my $f = Math::BigFloat->new('3.5'); my $i = int($f); print "f=$f\n"; print "i=$i\n"; print "i > f is '",($i > $f),"'\n";

This is fixed. The spaceship operator returns 0 for non-upgraded values, and -1 with upgrade turned on. Please close this ticket.
This was fixed in version 1.997.
