|Copying Rob's one-liner into my system gives yet another answer:
That's the same result as the OP got.
The difference is that perl's print function rounded the final 2 digits away, whereas Raku's didn't.
Now that I'm back home, I can see the same with perl on Ubuntu-20.04.
The figure that I reported came from Windows, so there's a discrepancy in the underlying C libraries.
C:\>perl -le "printf '%a', 1.2246467991473532e-16;
C:\>perl -le "printf '%a', 1.2246063538223773e-16;
The latter (which is what windows is reporting) is suspiciously truncated.
With the MPC library
, the given inputs produce a result of -1+2.8954204500590832e-16
