Ham::Reference::Qsignals - A quick reference for Q Signals.


Version 0.02


 my $q = new Ham::Reference::Qsignals;

 # use the get() function to get a single meaning for a particular Q signal

 print $q->get('qrp');
 print "\n";

 # use a hash reference to get all Q signals at once
 # the following will display all signals and meanings

 my $hashref = $q->get_hashref();
 foreach (sort keys %$hashref)
        print "$_ = $hashref->{$_}\n";


The Ham::Reference::Qsignals module is a quick reference to the ARRL suggested Q signal set. Other Q signal sets may be added in the future, but the primary mission of this module is for Amateur Radio applications.

 Function : creates a new Ham::Reference::Qsignals object
 Returns  : A Ham::Reference::Qsignals object

            -------     ---------   -----
            signal_set  no          select the set of Q signals
                                    the only set for now, and the default set

 Function : gets a single meaning for a given Q signal
 Returns  : a string
 Args     : you can get a full list of Q signals by accessing the keys of
