-=== nft_ctx_output_get_numeric() and nft_ctx_output_set_numeric()
-These functions allow control over value representation in library output.
-For instance, port numbers by default are printed by their name (as listed in '/etc/services' file), if known.
-In libnftables, numeric output is leveled, defined as such:
-enum nft_numeric_level {
-Each numeric level includes all previous ones:
- No conversion into numeric format happens, this is the default.
- Network addresses are always converted into numeric format.
- Network services are always converted into numeric format.
- Everything is converted into numeric format.
-The default numeric level is *NFT_NUMERIC_NONE*.
-The *nft_ctx_output_get_numeric*() function returns the numeric output setting's value contained in 'ctx'.
-The *nft_ctx_output_set_numeric*() function sets the numeric output setting in 'ctx' to the value of 'level'.
+ Display expression datatype as numeric value.
