DESCRIPTION

This module provides numeric data types for use with Class::Meta attributes. Simply load it, then pass the name of one of its types to the "add_attribute()" method of a Class::Meta object to create attributes of the numeric data type. See Class::Meta::Type for more information on using and creating data types.
The validation checks for Class::Meta::Types::Numeric are provided by the Data::Types module. Consult its documentation to find out what it considers to be a number and what's not.
