Badger::Data::Facet::Text::Whitespace - validation facet for whitespace


This module implements a validation facets for munging whitespace on text values.


This module implement the following methods in addition to those inherited from the Badger::Data::Facet::Text, Badger::Data::Facet and Badger::Base base classes.

validate($text_ref, $type)

This method performs whitespace handling on the text passed by reference as the first argument.

If the pre-defined action is preserve then the text will be unmodified.

If the action is fold then all whitespace characters in the text (carriage returns, newlines, tabs) will be converted to spaces.

If the action is collapse then all whitespace characters will first be converted to spaces as per fold. Any leading and trailing whitespace is then removed and any sequences of multiple spaces are collapsed to a single space.
