[mrtg] ConversionCode

I am asking about the ConversionCode.

In MRTG documentation, it is mentioned  that "Some devices may produce 
non-numeric values that would nevertheless be useful to graph with MRTG if 
those values could be converted to numbers. The ConversionCode keyword 
specifies the path to a file containing Perl code to perform such 
conversions. "

So, does it mean it deals with non-numeric values only ??
What if I want to use it with numeric values too, in order to extend MRTG to 
have rules and exceptions, and be able to manibulate my date before it gets 
into the rrd files ??

I want to have my perl script to do some tasks.
Anyone tried it with numric values too ??
