integer(3)							    integer(3)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

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

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This tells	the compiler that it's okay 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.

     See the section on	Pragmatic Modules in the perlmod manpage.
