NAME HTML::Fraction - Encode fractions as HTML entities SYNOPSIS my $fraction = HTML::Fraction->new; print $fraction->tweak($html); DESCRIPTION The HTML::Fraction encodes fractions as HTML entities. Some very common fractions have HTML entities (eg 1/2 is ½). Additionally, common vulgar fractions have Unicode characters (eg 1/5 is ⅕). This module takes a string and encodes fractions as entities: this means that it will look pretty in the browser. Fractions that are supported: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1/3, 2/3, 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 1/6, 5/6, 1/8, 3/8, 5/8 and 7/8. Fractions may be in the string in the form numerator slash denominator ("1/5") or in decimal form ("0.5"). Numbers that do not have exact decimal representation must be equal to the fraction to two decimal places. This module supports converting whole and fractional decimal numbers (e.g. "2.25".) CONSTRUCTOR new The constructor takes no arguments: my $fraction = HTML::Fraction->new; METHODS tweak Encode the fractions in the HTML as HTML entities: print $fraction->tweak($html); tweak_frac Encode the fractions that are in the form "1/3" or "5/6" in the HTML as HTML entities, but not decimal fractions of the form "0.5". tweak_dec Encode the fractions that are in the form "0.5" or "0.5" in the HTML as HTML entities, but not fractions of the form "1/2" or "1/3". AUTHOR Leon Brocard, "<firstname.lastname@example.org>". Mark Fowler "<mark@twoshortplanks>" added some code, and probably some bugs. COPYRIGHT Copyright (C) 2005, Leon Brocard This module is free software; you can redistribute it or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself. BUGS We don't perform normalisation of the denominator and numerator so "4/6" is not converted like "2/3" is. This is intentional 2.25 doesn't render to the same thing as 2 1/2 (the latter has a space between the digit 2 and the fraction.)
