The correct way to round numbers in Perl is "printf()" and "sprintf()".
Note that rounding is something that makes sense to humans but not to
computers. Computers are binary, they don't care about our decimal
concepts, unless we ask them to. The times when decimal numbers matter is
during input (from a human) and output (for a human.) Therefore, it is
appropriate that the Perl method for rounding is an output (or string)

The following program
my $src = shift;
$ perl ./round.pl
I know why. It has to do with the well known side effects of using floating
What I don't know is a graceful way to round.
I would like to use something that already comes with perl and void adding
