NAME

Lingua::HU::Numbers - converts numbers into Hungarian language text form

SYNOPSIS

    use Lingua::HU::Numbers qw/num2hu num2hu_ordinal/;

    my $number = "42";
    my $foo = num2hu($number);
    print $foo;

prints

    negyvenkettő

DESCRIPTION

Lingua::HU::Numbers is a module converting numbers (like "42") into their Hungarian language representation ("negyvenkettő").

The module provides two optionally exported functions that can be exported: num2hu and num2hu_ordinal.

Please see the README file for details of Hungarian grammar.

FUNCTIONS

  • num2hu

    It takes a scalar value which currently must be a real number smaller than -+10**66. The return value is a scalar expressing the Hungarian text version of the given number.

  • num2hu_ordinal

    This function takes a scalar value which must be a positive integer smaller than 10**66. The return value is a scalar expressing the Hungarian ordinal text form of the specified number.

LIMITATIONS

The module cannot handle numbers larger than -+10**66 at the moment.

FUTURE PLANS

Exponential notation, fraction support will be added in the next few releases. Patches (and accompanying tests) are welcome.

The module aims to remain similar in structure to Lingua::EN::Numbers, so that those familiar with that module can use this one easily.
