DESCRIPTION

This module provides functions to convert numbers into words in Toki Pona, a constructed minimal language created by Sonja Elen Kisa and published in 2001.

FUNCTIONS

The following functions are provided but are not exported by default.

num2tokipona EXPR

If EXPR looks like a number, the text describing the number is returned. Both integers and real numbers are supported, including negatives. Special values such as "inf" and "NaN" are also supported.

num2tokipona_ordinal EXPR

If EXPR looks like an integer, the text describing the number in ordinal form is returned. The behavior when passing a non-integer value is undefined.

If EXPR is a value that does not look like a number or is not currently supported by this module, undef is returned.

The :all tag can be used to import all functions.

    use Lingua::TokiPona::Numbers qw( :all );
