I have a floating point variable \$fp.
I want to copy its value in decimal integer format to the variable \$di.
For example, if \$fp=354.34, I want \$di=354
if \$fp=354.55, I want \$di=355
How do I do this? Thanks.

\$fp=354.34;
\$di = sprintf("%.0f",\$fp);
print "Rounded: \$di\n";

\$fp=354.55;
\$di = sprintf("%.0f",\$fp);
print "Rounded: \$di\n";
