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.

#!/usr/local/bin/perl

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

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