We describe high-precision computations of the Pearcey integral Pe(x,y) for real x and y by means of Hadamard expansions. Numerical results for (x,y) situated in different regions of the x,y-plane are given to illustrate the levels of precision that can be achieved. Particular emphasis is given to computation in the neighbourhood of the two cusped curves associated with Pe(x,y) across which there is either a coalescence of saddles or a Stokes phenomenon.
