NAME ^

PPI::Token::Number::Version - Token class for a byte-packed number

SYNOPSIS ^

  $n = 1.1.0;
  $n = 127.0.0.1;
  $n = 10_000.10_000.10_000;
  $n = v1.2.3.4

INHERITANCE ^

  PPI::Token::Number::Version
  isa PPI::Token::Number
      isa PPI::Token
          isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION ^

The PPI::Token::Number::Version class is used for tokens that have multiple decimal points. In truth, these aren't treated like numbers at all by Perl, but they look like numbers to a parser.

METHODS ^

base

Returns the base for the number: 256.

literal

Return the numeric value of this token.

BUGS ^

- Does not handle leading minus sign correctly. Should translate to a DashedWord. See http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=574573

  -95.0.1.0  --> "-_\000\cA\000"
  -96.0.1.0  --> Argument "`\0^A\0" isn't numeric in negation (-)

SUPPORT ^

See the support section in the main module.
