NAME

Getopt::EX::Numbers - module to handle number parameters

SYNOPSIS

use Getopt::EX::Numbers;

my $obj = Getopt::EX::Numbers->new(max => 100);

$obj->parse("start:end:step:length"); $obj->range;

$obj->parse("start:end:step:length")->sequence;

Getopt::EX::Numbers->new->parse("1:10:2")->sequence;

FORMAT

Number format is composed by four elements: start, end, step and length. All elements are optional.

    1           1
    1:3         1,2,3
    1:20:5      1,     6,     11,       16
    1:20:5:3    1,2,3, 6,7,8, 11,12,13, 16,17,18

When start is omitted, minimum value is used, which is zero by default. If the object is initialized with max value, end element can be omitted.

    ::          all
    ::2         even numbers
    1::2        odd numbers

If start and end number is negative, they are subtracted from the maximum number. If the end number is prefixed by plus (`+') sign, it is summed to start number. Next examples produce top and last 10 numbers.

    :+9         top 10 numbers
    -9:         last 10 numbers

METHOD

new ( [ min => n ] , [ max => m ] )
