The "PPI::Token::Number::Version" class is used for tokens that have multiple decimal points. In truth, these aren't treated like numbers at all by Perl, but they look like numbers to a parser.

Returns the base for the number: 256.

Return the numeric value of this token.

- Does not handle leading minus sign correctly. Should translate to a DashedWord. See http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=574573

-  --> "-_\000\cA\000"
-  --> Argument "`\0^A\0" isn't numeric in negation (-)

See the support section in the main module.
