package integer;
=head1 NAME
integer - Perl pragma to compute arithmetic in integer instead of double
=head1 SYNOPSIS
use integer;
$x = 10/3;
# $x is now 3, not 3.33333333333333333
=head1 DESCRIPTION
This tells the compiler 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.
Note that this affects the operations, not the numbers. If you run this
code
use integer;
$x = 1.5;
$y = $x + 1;
$z = -1.5;
you'll be left with C<$x == 1.5>, C<$y == 2> and C<$z == -1>. The $z
case happens because unary C<-> counts as an operation.
See L.
