FUNCTIONS

None exported by default but all of them exportable.

format_metric($num, \%opts) => STR

Format $num using metric prefix. Locale settings are respected (this module uses locale). Might produce non-Latin Unicode characters (e.g. μ for 1e-6 prefix). Known options:

  • base => INT (either 2 or 10, default: 2)

  • precision => INT

  • i_mark => BOOL (default: 1)

    Give "i" suffix to prefixes when in base 10 for K, M, G, T, and so on.
