NAME

Term::Drawille - Draw to your terminal using Braille characters

VERSION

version 0.01

SYNOPSIS

  use Term::Drawille;

  binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(utf8)';
  my $canvas = Term::Drawille->new(
    width  => 400,
    height => 400,
  );

  for(my $i = 0; $i < 400; $i++) {
    $canvas->set($i, $i, 1);
  }

  print $canvas->as_string;

DESCRIPTION

Text::Drawille makes use of Braille characters to allow you to draw lines, circles, pictures, etc, to your terminal with a surprising amount of precision. It's based on a Python library (https://github.com/asciimoo/drawille); its page has some screenshots that demonstrate what it and this module can accomplish.

METHODS

Term::Drawille->new(%params)

Creates a new canvas to draw on.

Valid key value pairs for %params are:

width

Specify the width of the canvas in pixels.

height

Specify the height of the canvas in pixels.

$canvas->set($x, $y, [$value])

Sets the value of the pixel at ($x, $y) to $value. If $value is omitted, it defaults to 1.

The $value is interpreted as a boolean: whether or not to draw the pixel at the given position.

$canvas->as_string

Draws the canvas as a string of Braille characters and returns it. Note that the string consists of Unicode characters and not raw bytes; this means you'll likely have to encode it before sending it to the terminal. This may change in future releases.
