NAME

Data::Cmp::StrOrNumeric - Compare two data structures, return -1/0/1 like cmp or <=>

VERSION

This document describes version 0.007 of Data::Cmp::StrOrNumeric (from Perl distribution Data-Cmp), released on 2019-11-18.

SYNOPSIS

 use Data::Cmp::StrOrNumeric qw(cmp_data);

 cmp_data(["a", "b", "c"], ["a", "b", "d"]);            # => -1
 cmp_data([0, 1, 10], [0, 1, 9]);                       # => 1

Contrasted with Data::Cmp:

 use Data::Cmp ();

 Data::Cmp::cmp_data(["a", "b", "c"], ["a", "b", "d"]); # => -1
 Data::Cmp::cmp_data([0, 1, 10], [0, 1, 9]);            # => -1

Perform numeric comparison with some tolerance:

 {
     local $Data::Cmp::StrOrNumeric::EPSILON = 1e-3;
     cmp_data(1, 1.1   );     # -1
     cmp_data(1, 1.0001);     #  0
     cmp_data([1], [1.0001]); #  0
 }

DESCRIPTION

VARIABLES

$EPSILON

Can be set to perform numeric comparison with some tolerance. See example in Synopsis.

FUNCTIONS

cmp_data

Usage:

 cmp_data($d1, $d2) => -1/0/1/2

This module's cmp_data() is just like Data::Cmp's except that when the two non-references being compared look like number (tested using Scalar::Util's looks_like_number(), they are compared with <=> instead of cmp. If none or only one of the non-reference is a number, cmp is used like in Data::Cmp.
