NAME

Data::FormValidator::Filters::WikiTrim - Trim filter for wikitext fields

SYNOPSIS

  use Data::FormValidator::Filters::WikiTrim qw(wiki_trim);

  # Build Data::FormValidator profile
  my $profile = {
      'required' => [qw( subject body )],
      'field_filters' => {
          'subject' => 'trim',
          'body'    => wiki_trim(),
      },
  };

DESCRIPTION

Data::FormValidator::Filters::WikiTrim provides a slightly different trim filter than the default. Rather than trimming all leading/trailing whitespace, we trim all leading blank lines and all trailing whitespace. In a wikitext field, leading spaces on the first line could be important so they need to be preserved (while leading blank lines aren't important and could be trimmed out).

METHODS

wiki_trim()

Returns a filter which trims leading/trailing whitespace in a manner more suitable for wikitext entry fields; leading blank -lines- are trimmed, as well as all trailing whitespace.

This differs from the standard "trim" filter in that we're only trimming leading blank -lines- but leave any leading whitespace on the first line; those leading spaces may be important.
