MARC::Charset::Table(3User Contributed Perl DocumentatiMARC::Charset::Table(3)

NAME
       MARC::Charset::Table - character	mapping	db

SYNOPSIS
	   use MARC::Charset::Table;
	   use MARC::Charset::Constants	qw(:all);

	   # create the	table object
	   my $table = MARC::Charset::Table->new();

	   # get a code	using the marc8	character set code and the character
	   my $code = $table->lookup_by_marc8(CYRILLIC_BASIC, 'K');

	   # get a code	using the utf8 value
	   $code = $table->lookup_by_utf8(chr(0x043A));

DESCRIPTION
       MARC::Charset::Table is a wrapper around	the character mapping
       database, which is implemented as a tied	hash on	disk. This database
       gets generated by Makefile.PL on	installation of	MARC::Charset using
       MARC::Charset::Compiler.

       The database is essentially a key/value mapping where a key is a	MARC-8
       character set code + a MARC-8 character,	or an integer representing the
       UCS code	point. These keys map to a serialized MARC::Charset::Code
       object.

   new()
       The consturctor.

   add_code()
       Add a MARC::Charset::Code to the	table.

   get_code()
       Retrieve	a code using a hash key.

   lookup_by_marc8()
       Looks up	MARC::Charset::Code entry using	a character set	code and a
       MARC-8 value.

	   use MARC::Charset::Constants	qw(HEBREW);
	   $code = $table->lookup_by_marc8(HEBREW, chr(0x60));

   lookup_by_utf8()
       Looks up	a MARC::Charset::Code object using a utf8 value.

   db()
       Returns a reference to a	tied character database. MARC::Charset::Table
       wraps access to the db, but you can get at it if	you want.

   db_path()
       Returns the path	to the character encoding database. Can	be called
       statically too:

	   print MARC::Charset::Table->db_path();

   brand_new()
       An alternate constructor	which removes the existing database and	starts
       afresh. Be careful with this one, it's really only used on
       MARC::Charset installation.
