NAME

integer - Perl pragma to compute arithmetic in integer instead of double


SYNOPSIS

    use integer;
    $x = 10/3;
    # $x is now 3, not 3.33333333333333333


DESCRIPTION

This tells the compiler to use integer operations from here to the end of the enclosing BLOCK. On many machines, this doesn't matter a great deal for most computations, but on those without floating point hardware, it can make a big difference.

Note that this affects the operations, not the numbers. If you run this code

    use integer;
    $x = 1.5;
    $y = $x + 1;
    $z = -1.5;

you'll be left with $x == 1.5, $y == 2 and $z == -1. The $z case happens because unary - counts as an operation.

See Pragmatic Modules.


DISCLAIMER

We are painfully aware that these documents may contain incorrect links and misformatted HTML. Such bugs lie in the automatic translation process that automatically created the hundreds and hundreds of separate documents that you find here. Please do not report link or formatting bugs, because we cannot fix per-document problems. The only bug reports that will help us are those that supply working patches to the installhtml or pod2html programs, or to the Pod::HTML module itself, for which I and the entire Perl community will shower you with thanks and praises.

If rather than formatting bugs, you encounter substantive content errors in these documents, such as mistakes in the explanations or code, please use the perlbug utility included with the Perl distribution.
