NAME
Unicode::Fraction - easy generation of UTF-8 fractions
SYNOPSIS
use Unicode::Fraction qw(fraction);
say fraction(1,2); # ½
say fraction(1,12); # ⅟₁₂
say fraction(35,48); # ³⁵⁄₄₈
DESCRIPTION
This module provides a simple function to print vulgar fractions in
UTF-8.
FUNCTIONS
fraction ($num, $denom)
Generate a UTF-8 encoding string representing the given fraction, using
the most compact representation available. The standard Unicode glyphs
(¼, ½, etc.) are used if possible; failing that, subscripted and
superscripted numbers are used (with either the '⁄' or '⅟' glyphs).
Fractions are not normalised, that is, fraction(2,4) is distinct from
fraction(1,2).
