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; 0x1.1a62633145c07p-53 C:\>perl -le "printf '%a', 1.2246063538223773e-16; 0x1.1a6p-53
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.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
