NAME ^

Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy - Hash access to Lingua::EN::Numbers objects.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy;

    print "$N{1} fish, $N{2} fish, blue fish, red fish";
                         # one fish, two fish, blue fish, red fish.

DESCRIPTION ^

Lingua::EN::Numbers is a module that translates numbers to English words. Unfortunally, it has an object oriented interface, which makes it hard to interpolate them in strings. Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy translates numbers to words using a tied hash, which can be interpolated.

By default, Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy exports a hash %N to the importing package. This can be changed by giving use Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy an argument - this argument is the name of the hash that will be used instead:

    use Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy qw /%nums/;

would use %nums as the tied hash.

See also the Lingua::EN::Numbers man page.

Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy caches results - numbers will only be translated once.

Any other operation on the exported hash than fetches will throw an exception.

History

This module was created at the end of the 20th century, when Lingua::EN::Numbers has a clunky, OO interface. Nowadays, Lingua::EN::Numbers has procedural interface as well, lessening the need for Lingua::EN::Numbers::Easy.

Furthermore, Lingua::EN::Numbers no longer supports different British and American modes. Therefore, the support for the modes has been dropped in Lingua::EN::Numbers as well.
