( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If you are just looking for an elegant, ready-made solution then Scalar::Util::looks_like_number fits the bill:

use strict; use warnings; use Scalar::Util 'looks_like_number'; use Test::More; my @nums = ( '1.5671', '777', '0', '-4.567', '+9.987' ); my @not = ( '0777 891 777', '121A3D', '+9.8.97', '+9.897', '9.8[97' ); plan tests => @nums + @not; for my $i (@nums) { ok looks_like_number ($i), "$i is a number"; } for my $i (@not) { ok ! looks_like_number ($i), "$i is not a number"; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
