Scalar::Util - A selection of general-utility scalar subroutines River stage five • 3651 direct dependents • 31248 total dependents

"Scalar::Util" contains a selection of subroutines that people have expressed would be nice to have in the perl core, but the usage would not really be high enough to warrant the use of a keyword, and the size would be so small that being individual ...

Scalar::Vec::Util - Utility routines for vec strings. River stage zero No dependents

This module provides a set of utility routines that efficiently manipulate bits in vec strings. Highly optimized XS functions are used whenever possible, but straightforward pure Perl replacements are also available for platforms without a C compiler...

Scalar::Util::Numeric - numeric tests for perl scalars River stage three • 41 direct dependents • 716 total dependents

This module exports a number of wrappers around perl's builtin "grok_number" function, which returns the numeric type of its argument, or 0 if it isn't numeric....

Scalar::Util::Reftype River stage one • 5 direct dependents • 5 total dependents

This module is DEPRECATED. Please use Ref::Util instead. This is an alternate interface to "Scalar::Util"'s "reftype" function. Instead of manual type checking you can just call methods on the result to see if matches the desired type....

Scalar::Util::Instance - Generates and installs is-a predicates River stage zero No dependents

Scalar::Util::Instance provides is-a predicates to look up an is-a hierarchy for specific classes. This is an alternative to "blessed($obj) && $obj->isa(...)", but is significantly faster than it....

Scalar::Util::Numeric::PP - Pure-perl drop-in replacement/approximation of Scalar::Util::Numeric River stage three • 6 direct dependents • 553 total dependents

This module is written mainly for the convenience of Data::Sah, as a drop-in pure-perl replacement for the XS module Scalar::Util::Numeric, in the case when Data::Sah needs to generate code that uses PP modules instead of XS ones. Not all functions f...

Scalar::Util::LooksLikeNumber - Access to looks_like_number() perl API function River stage two • 2 direct dependents • 13 total dependents

"Scalar::Util::LooksLikeNumber" contains looks_like_number() like "Scalar::Util"'s looks_like_number(), except it returns the raw value from the C function. Scalar::Util used to do this also, but it returns a booleanized value since 1.39....

Scalar::MoreUtils - Provide the stuff missing in Scalar::Util River stage zero No dependents

Similar to "Hsah::MoreUtils" and "List::MoreUtils", "Scalar::MoreUtils" contains trivial but commonly-used scalar functionality. Essentially, provide some pretty trivial functionality that I find useful over and over. The value of this module will pr...

Scalar::Does - like ref() but useful River stage two • 11 direct dependents • 32 total dependents

It has long been noted that Perl would benefit from a "does()" built-in. A check that "ref($thing) eq 'ARRAY'" doesn't allow you to accept an object that uses overloading to provide an array-like interface. Functions "does($scalar, $role)" Checks if ...

Scalar::Alias - Perl extention to declare lexical scalar aliases River stage zero No dependents

Scalar::Alias allows you to declare lexical scalar aliases. There are many modules that provides variable aliases, but this module is faster than any other alias modules, because it walks into compiled syntax trees and inserts custom opcodes into the...

Scalar::Readonly - functions for controlling whether any scalar variable is read-only River stage one • 3 direct dependents • 3 total dependents

This simple module can make scalars read-only. Useful to protect configuration variables, for example. This module can also be used to subvert Perl's many read-only variables to potential evil trickery. readonly Ths function takes a scalar variable a...

Scalar::Classify - get type and class information for scalars River stage one • 2 direct dependents • 2 total dependents

Scalar::Classify provides a routine named "classify" that can be used to examine a given argument to determine it's type and class (if any). Here "type" means either the return from reftype (, or if it's a scalar, a code indicating whether it's a str...
