PERLServer Side ProgrammingProgramming Scripts

A scalar is most often either a number or a string. Following example demonstrates the usage of various types of numeric scalars −

Example

 Live Demo

#!/usr/bin/perl
$integer = 200;
$negative = -300;
$floating = 200.340;
$bigfloat = -1.2E-23;
# 377 octal, same as 255 decimal
$octal = 0377;
# FF hex, also 255 decimal
$hexa = 0xff;

print "integer = $integer\n";
print "negative = $negative\n";
print "floating = $floating\n";
print "bigfloat = $bigfloat\n";
print "octal = $octal\n";
print "hexa = $hexa\n";

Output

This will produce the following result −

integer = 200
negative = -300
floating = 200.34
bigfloat = -1.2e-23
octal = 255
hexa = 255
