NAME

Astro::Units - Astronomical unit conversion with high precision and large number support

VERSION

version 1.00

SYNOPSIS

Astro::Units can capable of converting the astrological units into mile or kilometers with the added support of conversion from astrological to light year and vice-versa

   # Raw number input will be truncated by Perl hence need to use
   # either bignum in the script or single quotes to pass large number to methods

    use Astro::Units;
    use bignum;
    my $astro =  new Astouniuts();
    print $astro->get_astronomical_units(19999); #use bigint
    
              OR
    
    use Astro::Units;
    my $astro =  new Astouniuts();
    print $astro->get_astronomical_units('19999'); #single quote
    

DESCRIPTION

Astro::Units,

Features include:

  • High Precision

  • Support for very large number range

  • Fast

  • Imperial as well as SI unit system support

Astro::Units is useful for performing the astrological conversion and calculation till n'th digit with precision. Without worrying about result getting truncated.

CONSTRUCTOR AND STARTUP

new()

Creates and returns a new Astro::Units object.

    my $astro = Astro::Units->new()

Astro::Units supports unit option

new() set metric system

    my $astro = Astro::Units->new(unit => 'mile')
                        or 
    my $astro = Astro::Units->new(unit => 'kilometer')

supported unit input

    Default is Kilometers

    mile
    mi
    m  
    anything starting will m will be considered as miles
    kilometers
    kl
    k
    anything starting will k will be considered as kilometers
