# NAME

Math::NumSeq::FractionDigits -- the digits of a fraction p/q

# SYNOPSIS

`````` use Math::NumSeq::FractionDigits;
my \$seq = Math::NumSeq::FractionDigits->new (fraction => '2/11');
my (\$i, \$value) = \$seq->next;``````

# DESCRIPTION

The sequence of digits which are a given fraction. For example 1/7 in decimal 1,4,2,8,5,7,1,4, etc, being 0.14285714...

The digits are always a repeating sequence of length no more than den-1. In fact for a given repeating sequence a,b,c,a,b,c,etc the fraction is abc/999, if you want to cook up a sequence like that. In a base other than decimal the "9" is radix-1, ie. the highest digit.

# FUNCTIONS

See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for the behaviour common to all path classes.

`\$seq = Math::NumSeq::FractionDigits->new (fraction => \$f)`
`\$seq = Math::NumSeq::FractionDigits->new (fraction => \$f, radix => \$r)`

Create and return a new sequence object giving the digits of `\$f`. `\$f` is a string "num/den", or a decimal "xx.yy",

``````    2/29
1.5/3.25
29.125``````

The default is digits in decimal, or with the `radix` parameter in another base.
