How do I get that output reduced to a real in scientific format?
If you want arbitrary precision, the safest bet is to extract the digits yourself:
module ScientificFormat (sciformat) where import Ratio -- return prec+1 digits because I don't round sciformat prec r = sign ++ digits ++ "e" ++ show exp where (ds, exp) = tosci (abs numer) (denominator r) 0 numer = numerator r sign = if signum numer < 0 then "-" else "+" digits = show (head ds') ++ "." ++ concatMap show (tail ds') ds' = take (prec+1) (ds ++ repeat 0) tosci 0 _ _ = ([0], 0) tosci numer denom exp = case numer `div` denom of 0 -> tosci (10 * numer) denom (exp-1) x | x >= 10 -> tosci numer (10*denom) (exp+1) _ -> (digits numer denom, exp) digits n d = let (q,r) = n `quotRem` d in q : digits (10*r) d
module Main (main) where import FishersExactTest import ScientificFormat main = interact $ sciformat 60 . pCutoff . map (map read . words) . li +nes
[thor@arinmir fishers-exact-test]$ time ./fet < ex1.dat +8.070604647867604097576877675243109941729476950993498765160880e-7030 real 0m0.839s user 0m0.819s sys 0m0.016s

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.
