NAME ^

Lingua::EN::FindNumber - Locate (written) numbers in English text

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Lingua::EN::FindNumber;
  my $text = "Fourscore and seven years ago, our four fathers...";

  numify($text); # "87 years ago, our 4 fathers..."

  @numbers = extract_numbers($text); # "Fourscore and seven", "four"

  while ($text =~ /$number_re/g) { # Build your own iterator

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a regular expression for finding numbers in English text. It also provides functions for extracting and manipulating such numbers.

EXPORTED METHODS ^

extract_numbers / numify / $number_re

  numify($text); # "87 years ago, our 4 fathers..."

  @numbers = extract_numbers($text); # "Fourscore and seven", "four"

  while ($text =~ /$number_re/g) { # Build your own iterator

SEE ALSO ^

This module was written for the Natural Languages chapter of the second edition of Advanced Perl Programming.

This module works rather well in conjunction with Lingua::EN::Words2Nums, which is a very cool module anyway. (And Simon stole some of this module's code from it. Thanks, Joey!) It may also be involved with Lingua::EN::NamedEntity in the future, so check that one out too.
