NAME

File::PatternMatch - parse media information from filenames

SYNOPSIS

  use File::PatternMatch;

  my @files = glob("$ENV{HOME}/music/*");

  my $plain = patternmatch(@files);

  my $extended_colors = patternmatch(256, @files);

DESCRIPTION

This module was initially written to be used together with File::Media::Sort and Parse::Flexget.

File::PatternMatch takes a list of filenames and tries to parse relevant information from them. If a filename contains the string 'S01E01' we can safely assume it's a new TV show, the first episode from the first season, and thus we label it 'New Show'.

There are filters for various music genres, tv shows and music videos.

The labels can be formatted in three ways;

plaintext

Raw, plain text.

colored

Colored using extended escape sequences (see Term::ExtendedColor).

dzen2

Formatted using the dzen2(1) notation.

EXPORTS

None by default.

FUNCTIONS

patternmatch()

Parameters: $output_format, @files

Returns: \%results

patternmatch() takes a list of filenames and tries to match them aginst specific patterns. The result might look like:

  # Plain text
  2 => {
    'Prison.Break.S01E01-FOOBAR'  => 'New Show',
  },
  42 => {
    'Laleh-Prinsessor-FOOBAZ'     => 'Pop/Rock',
  },

  # Using extended color escape sequences
  2 => {
    'Prison.Break.S01E01-FOOBAR'  => "\e[38;5;160mNew Show\e[0m",
  },

  # Using dzen2 format
  2 => {
    'Prison.Break.S01E01-FOOBAR'  => '^fg(#ff0000)New Show^fg()',
  },
