its the good old binary/decimal rounding issue

$result is internally something like e.g.14497.999999999998

when using plain echo rounding will be applied (see php.ini 'precision')
while sprintf "%d" does not round but will cut of all decimals 

sprintf("%d",round($result)) should work find

Sometimes when trying to multiply a float and a int then print the result out with 
sprintf there is a error in the computation.

The following code produces the incorrect output:


    $val1 = 144.98;
    $result = ($val1 * 100);

    echo $result . "n";                       ## Correct output '14498'
    echo sprintf ("%10dn", $result);    ## Incorrect output '14497'


Not sure if there is something obvious that I am missing? Any help would be 

My config line:
./configure --with-mysql=/usr --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-gd=/usr/local 
--enable-trans-sid --enable-track-vars --enable-bcmath --with-ttf
