/^[+-]? [0-9]+$/

### Example

This is an example to judge whether a variable is a numerical value.

use strict; use warnings; print "1: Determine if the string represents the correct number\n"; my $num1 = "345"; # Determining if the string is only numbers # Read "One or more numbers continue from the beginning to the end" if ($num1 =~ /^[0-9]+$/) { print "$num1 is a string of numbers only.\n"; } # Judgment whether it is an integer my $num2 = "-123"; # "With or without + or-at the beginning, after that # One or more numbers follow to the end " if ($num2 =~ /^[+-]? [0-9]+$/) { print "$num2 is an integer.\n"; }
