Net::AMQP::Value - A collection of classes for typing AMQP data


  use Net::AMQP::Value;

  # ... somewhere, in an AMQP table:

    Net::AMQP::Value::String->new("1")     # not an integer
    Net::AMQP::Value::Integer->new(" 1")   # not a string
    Net::AMQP::Value::Timestamp->new(1)    # not an integer
    Net::AMQP::Value::Boolean->new(1)      # not an integer
    Net::AMQP::Value::true                 # shorthand for ...Boolean->new(1)
    Net::AMQP::Value::false                # shorthand for ...Boolean->new(0)


Generally in tables Net::AMQP tries to be smart, so e.g. a table value of '1' or '-1' is transmitted as an integer. When this intelligence becomes a problem, use these classes to type your data. For example, a table value of Net::AMQP::Value::String-new(1)> will be transmitted as the string "1".

These classes also overload the basics like "", 0+, and bool so if you use them outside an AMQP table, they will probably Do The Right Thing.
