Locale::Maketext::Lexicon - Use other catalog formats in Maketext VERSION
This document describes version 0.91 of Locale::Maketext::Lexicon. SYNOPSIS
As part of a localization class, automatically glob for available lexicons: package Hello::I18N; use base 'Locale::Maketext'; use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon { '*' => [Gettext => '/usr/local/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/'], ### Uncomment to fallback when a key is missing from lexicons # _auto => 1, ### Uncomment to decode lexicon entries into Unicode strings # _decode => 1, ### Uncomment to load and parse everything right away # _preload => 1, ### Uncomment to use %1 / %quant(%1) instead of [_1] / [quant, _1] # _style => 'gettext', }; Explicitly specify languages, during compile- or run-time: package Hello::I18N; use base 'Locale::Maketext'; use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon { de => [Gettext => 'hello_de.po'], fr => [ Gettext => 'hello_fr.po', Gettext => 'local/hello/fr.po', ], }; # ... incrementally add new lexicons Locale::Maketext::Lexicon->import({ de => [Gettext => 'local/hello/de.po'], }) Alternatively, as part of a localization subclass: package Hello::I18N::de; use base 'Hello::I18N'; use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon (Gettext => *DATA); __DATA__ # Some sample data msgid "" msgstr "" "Project-Id-Version: Hello " "MIME-Version: 1.0 " "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso8859-1 " "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit " #: msgid "Hello, World!" msgstr "Hallo, Welt!" #: msgid "You have %quant(%1,piece) of mail." msgstr "Sie haben %quant(%1,Poststueck,Poststuecken)." DESCRIPTION
This module provides lexicon-handling modules to read from other localization formats, such as Gettext, Msgcat, and so on. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of lexicon modules, please consult Locale::Maketext and the "webl10n" HTML files in the "docs/" directory of this module. A command-line utility is also installed with this module, for extracting translatable strings from source files. The "import" function The "import()" function accepts two forms of arguments: (format => source ... ) This form takes any number of argument pairs (usually one); source may be a file name, a filehandle, or an array reference. For each such pair, it pass the contents specified by the second argument to Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::format->parse as a plain list, and export its return value as the %Lexicon hash in the calling package. In the case that there are multiple such pairs, the lexicon defined by latter ones overrides earlier ones. { language => [ format, source ... ] ... } This form accepts a hash reference. It will export a %Lexicon into the subclasses specified by each language, using the process described above. It is designed to alleviate the need to set up a separate subclass for each localized language, and just use the catalog files. This module will convert the language arguments into lowercase, and replace all "-" with "_", so "zh_TW" and "zh-tw" will both map to the "zh_tw" subclass. If language begins with "_", it is taken as an option that controls how lexicons are parsed. See "Options" for a list of available options. The "*" is a special language; it must be used in conjunction with a filename that also contains "*"; all matched files with a valid language code in the place of "*" will be automatically prepared as a lexicon subclass. If there is multiple "*" in the filename, the last one is used as the language name. Options "_auto" If set to a true value, missing lookups on lexicons are handled silently, as if an "Auto" lexicon has been appended on all language lexicons. "_decode" If set to a true value, source entries will be converted into utf8-strings (available in Perl 5.6.1 or later). This feature needs the Encode or Encode::compat module. Currently, only the "Gettext" backend supports this option. "_encoding" This option only has effect when "_decode" is set to true. It specifies an encoding to store lexicon entries, instead of utf8-strings. If "_encoding" is set to "locale", the encoding from the current locale setting is used. "_preload" By default parsing is delayed until first use of the lexicon, set this option to true value to parse it asap. Increment adding lexicons forces parsing. Subclassing format handlers If you wish to override how sources specified in different data types are handled, please use a subclass that overrides "lexicon_get_TYPE". XXX: not documented well enough yet. Patches welcome. NOTES
When you attempt to localize an entry missing in the lexicon, Maketext will throw an exception by default. To inhibit this behaviour, override the "_AUTO" key in your language subclasses, for example: $Hello::I18N::en::Lexicon{_AUTO} = 1; # autocreate missing keys If you want to implement a new "Lexicon::*" backend module, please note that "parse()" takes an array containing the source strings from the specified filehandle or filename, which are not "chomp"ed. Although if the source is an array reference, its elements will probably not contain any newline characters anyway. The "parse()" function should return a hash reference, which will be assigned to the typeglob (*Lexicon) of the language module. All it amounts to is that if the returned reference points to a tied hash, the %Lexicon will be aliased to the same tied hash if it was not initialized previously. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
Thanks to Jesse Vincent for suggesting this module to be written. Thanks also to Sean M. Burke for coming up with Locale::Maketext in the first place, and encouraging me to experiment with alternative Lexicon syntaxes. Thanks also to Yi Ma Mao for providing the MO file parsing subroutine, as well as inspiring me to implement file globbing and transcoding support. See the AUTHORS file in the distribution for a list of people who have sent helpful patches, ideas or comments.
