Locale::Maketext::Simple - Simple interface to Locale::Maketext::Lexicon VERSION
This document describes version 0.18 of Locale::Maketext::Simple, released Septermber 8, 2006. SYNOPSIS
Minimal setup (looks for auto/Foo/*.po and auto/Foo/*.mo): package Foo; use Locale::Maketext::Simple; # exports 'loc' loc_lang('fr'); # set language to French sub hello { print loc("Hello, [_1]!", "World"); } More sophisticated example: package Foo::Bar; use Locale::Maketext::Simple ( Class => 'Foo', # search in auto/Foo/ Style => 'gettext', # %1 instead of [_1] Export => 'maketext', # maketext() instead of loc() Subclass => 'L10N', # Foo::L10N instead of Foo::I18N Decode => 1, # decode entries to unicode-strings Encoding => 'locale', # but encode lexicons in current locale # (needs Locale::Maketext::Lexicon 0.36) ); sub japh { print maketext("Just another %1 hacker", "Perl"); } DESCRIPTION
This module is a simple wrapper around Locale::Maketext::Lexicon, designed to alleviate the need of creating Language Classes for module authors. The language used is chosen from the loc_lang call. If a lookup is not possible, the i-default language will be used. If the lookup is not in the i-default language, then the key will be returned. If Locale::Maketext::Lexicon is not present, it implements a minimal localization function by simply interpolating "[_1]" with the first argument, "[_2]" with the second, etc. Interpolated function like "[quant,_1]" are treated as "[_1]", with the sole exception of "[tense,_1,X]", which will append "ing" to "_1" when X is "present", or appending "ed" to <_1> otherwise. OPTIONS
All options are passed either via the "use" statement, or via an explicit "import". Class By default, Locale::Maketext::Simple draws its source from the calling package's auto/ directory; you can override this behaviour by explicitly specifying another package as "Class". Path If your PO and MO files are under a path elsewhere than "auto/", you may specify it using the "Path" option. Style By default, this module uses the "maketext" style of "[_1]" and "[quant,_1]" for interpolation. Alternatively, you can specify the "gettext" style, which uses %1 and "%quant(%1)" for interpolation. This option is case-insensitive. Export By default, this module exports a single function, "loc", into its caller's namespace. You can set it to another name, or set it to an empty string to disable exporting. Subclass By default, this module creates an "::I18N" subclass under the caller's package (or the package specified by "Class"), and stores lexicon data in its subclasses. You can assign a name other than "I18N" via this option. 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. Encoding Specifies an encoding to store lexicon entries, instead of utf8-strings. If set to "locale", the encoding from the current locale setting is used. Implies a true value for "Decode". ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
Thanks to Jos I. Boumans for suggesting this module to be written. Thanks to Chia-Liang Kao for suggesting "Path" and "loc_lang". SEE ALSO
