NAME

Data::Text - Class to handle text in an OO way

VERSION

Version 0.09

SYNOPSIS

Handle text in an OO way.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

Creates a Data::Text object.

The optional parameter 'text' contains a string, or object, to initialise the object with.

set

Sets the object to contain the given text.

append

Adds data given in "text" to the end of the object. Contains a simple sanity test for consecutive punctuation. I expect I'll improve that.

Successive calls to append() can be daisy chained.

The argument can be a reference to an array of strings, or an object. If called with an object, the message as_string() is sent to it for its contents.

as_string

Returns the text as a string.

length

Returns the length of the text.

trim

Removes leading and trailing spaces from the string.

rtrim

Removes trailing spaces from the string.

replace

Replaces words.

use Data::Text;

my $dt = Data::Text->new();
$dt->append('Hello World');
$dt->replace({ 'Hello' => 'Goodbye dear' });
print $dt->as_string(), "\n";       # Outputs "Goodbye dear world"
