Lire::DataTypes(3) check wether value is of declared type


use Lire::DataTypes qw/ size2bytes duration2sec ... /;
$bytes = size2bytes( $min_value );
$sec = duration2sec( $max_value );


Lire::DataTypes offers several routines, like check_url and check_duration, to decide wether a value is of a Lire type. Furthermore, routines to process these types, like duration2sec and bytes2size are offered. Lire types are defined in lire-types.mod.

This module is widely used throughout other Lire:: modules.
