VERSION

This document describes Don::Mendo version 0.0.3.

SYNOPSIS

    use Don::Mendo;
    my $don_mendo = new Don::Mendo;
    my $first_act = $don_mendo->jornadas->[0]; #Acts in the play are
                                #"jornadas"

DESCRIPTION

A structured module for "La venganza de Don Mendo", by D. Pedro Muñoz Seca, a play written in 1918 and widely known and represented in Spain. The text was converted from a PDF found in www.juntadeandalucia.es/averroes/~04700442a/Mendo.pdf. It's old enough to be in the public domain, so I guess there's no problem here.

INTERFACE

new()

Parses the text and sets up journeys, characters, lines and everything.

text()

Returns the whole text, in the original version

jornadas()

Returns an arrayref with the 4 journeys that constitute the play

DEPENDENCIES

Just the basic test and Carp modules

INCOMPATIBILITIES

This should be compatible with everything, up to and including Shakespeare, dada theater, and improv.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

It's not clear from the book if Don Mendo is beautiful or ugly as monkey's ass. You can wait for the next version of Don Mendo to fix this, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-don-mendo@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.
