$var = 768;
$varKB = printf("%.01 KB", $var/1024); # 0.7 KB
$varKB = printf("%.02 KB", $var/1024); # 0.76 KB
$varMB = printf("%.02 MB", $var/1048576); # 0.00 MB
$varMB = printf("%.03 MB", $var/1048576); # 0.001 MB
and so on...

How do I have it auto return the best reply, example:

sub get_var_size {

      return sprintf("%.02 KB", length($_[0])/1024); # 0.76 KB
      
}

Sometimes the var length can be 6000 characters or 20000 ...

thanks
