DESCRIPTION

This module provides functions to convert numbers into words in Klingon, a constructed fictional language created by Mark Okrand and introduced in 1984.

FUNCTIONS

The following functions are provided but are not exported by default.

num2tlh EXPR

If EXPR looks like a number, the text describing the number is returned. Both integers and real numbers are supported, although negatives are not currently supported.

num2tlh_ordinal EXPR

If EXPR looks like an integer, the text describing the number in ordinal form is returned. The behavior when passing a non-integer value is undefined.

If EXPR is a value that does not look like a number or is not currently supported by this module, undef is returned.

The :all tag can be used to import all functions.

    use Lingua::TLH::Numbers qw( :all );

TODO

  • support negatives, inf, and NaN

  • support exponential notation

  • option for the older ternary number system

  • option for using "SanID" instead of "SaD" for "thousand"
