BSON::Double - BSON type wrapper for Double
use BSON::Types ':all';
my $bytes = bson_double( $number );
This module provides a BSON type wrapper for a numeric value that would be
represented in BSON as a double.
A numeric scalar (or the special strings "Inf", "-Inf" or
"NaN"). This will be coerced to Perl's numeric type. The default is
Returns a double, unless the value is 'Inf', '-Inf' or 'NaN' (which are illegal
in JSON), in which case an exception is thrown.
Some Perls may not support converting "Inf" or "NaN" strings
to their double equivalent. They are available as functions from the POSIX
module, but as a lighter alternative to POSIX, the following functions are
- BSON::Double::pInf() – positive
- BSON::Double::nInf() – negative infinity
- BSON::Double::NaN() – not-a-number
The numification operator, "0+" is overloaded to return the
"value", the full "minimal set" of overloaded operations
is provided (per overload documentation) and fallback overloading is enabled.
