NAME

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

CONTENTS

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 / CW$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.
