NAME

BSON::Int64 - BSON type wrapper for Int64

VERSION

version v1.6.0

SYNOPSIS

    use BSON::Types ':all';

    bson_int64( $number );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a BSON type wrapper for a numeric value that would be represented in BSON as a 64-bit integer.

If the value won't fit in a 64-bit integer, an error will be thrown.

On a Perl without 64-bit integer support, the value must be a Math::BigInt object.

ATTRIBUTES

value

A numeric scalar. It will be coerced to an integer. The default is 0.

METHODS

TO_JSON

On a 64-bit perl, returns the value as an integer. On a 32-bit Perl, it will be returned as a Math::BigInt object, which will fail to serialize unless a TO_JSON method is defined for that or in package universal.

If the BSON_EXTJSON option is true, it will instead be compatible with MongoDB's extended JSON format, which represents it as a document as follows:

    {"$numberLong" : "223372036854775807"}

OVERLOADING

The numification operator, 0+ is overloaded to return the value, the full "minimal set" of overloaded operations is provided (per overload documentation) and fallback overloading is enabled.
