NAME

Locale::Places - Translate places using http://download.geonames.org/

VERSION

Version 0.04

METHODS

new

Create a Locale::Places object.

Takes one optional parameter, directory, which tells the object where to find the file GB.sql If that parameter isn't given, the module will attempt to find the databases, but that can't be guaranteed. Any other options are passed to the underlying database driver.

translate

Translate a city into a different language. Takes one mandatory argument: 'place'. It also takes two other arguments: 'from' and 'to', at least one of which must be given. If neither $to nor $from is given, the code makes a best guess based on the environment.

   use Locale::Places;

   # Prints "Douvres"
   print Locale::Places->new()->translate({ place => 'Dover', from => 'en', to => 'fr' });

   # Prints "Douvres" if we're working on a French system
   print Locale::Places->new()->translate('Dover');
