PPI::Token::Number - Token class for a number
$n = 1234; # decimal integer
$n = 0b1110011; # binary integer
$n = 01234; # octal integer
$n = 0x1234; # hexadecimal integer
$n = 12.34e-56; # exponential notation ( currently not working )
The "PPI::Token::Number" class is used for tokens that represent numbers, in the various
types that Perl supports.
The "base" method is provided by all of the ::Number subclasses. This is 10 for decimal,
16 for hexadecimal, 2 for binary, etc.
Return the numeric value of this token.
Compared to Perl, the number tokenizer is too liberal about allowing underscores anywhere.
For example, the following is a syntax error in Perl, but is allowed in PPI:
- Treat v-strings as binary strings or barewords, not as "base-256"
- Break out decimal integers into their own subclass?
- Implement literal()
See the support section in the main module.
