NAME

Lingua::PT::Words2Nums - Converts Portuguese words to numbers

SYNOPSIS

  use Lingua::PT::Words2Nums qw/word2num/;

  $result = num2word("cinco");
  # $result now holds 5

DESCRIPTION

Lingua::PT::Words2Nums converts Portuguese words to numbers (works with numbers ranging from 0 to 999.999.999.999.999.999).

Not all possible ways to write a number have been implemented (some people write "nove mil novecentos e um", some people write "nove mil, novecentos e um"; Lingua::PT::Words2Nums currently supports only the first way, without commas; also, the word "bilião" is supported, but not "bilhão").
