NAME

Text::AutoLink - Automatically Linkfy

SYNOPSIS

  use Text::AutoLink;
  my $auto = Text::AutoLink->new;
  my $text = $auto->parse_string('http://search.cpan.org');
  # '<a href="http://search.cpan.org">http://search.cpan.org</a>'

  my $auto = Text::AutoLink->new(
    plugins => [
        'Text::AutoLink::Plugin::HTTP'
        Text::AutoLink::Plugin::FTP->new(%args)
    ]
  );

DESCRIPTION

Text::AutoLink is a module inspired by Text::Hatena. I just wanted to automatically make HTML links in arbitrary text that is not in Text::Hatena format, so here it is.

Text::AutoLink is designed such that it can handle plain text or HTML text, with the focus on allowing arbitrary plugins to handle the transformation.

METHODS

new(%args)

Creates a new Text::AutoLink object.

plugins ARRAYREF

You may specify the list of plugins that you want to apply on a text. If you don't specify this parameter, Text::AutoLink will include all the plugins that are available under Text::AutoLink::Plugin namespace.

plugins

Returns the list of plugins that are associated with this instance.

parse_string SCALAR

Parses the given string and auto-links strings that are not already linked. Returns the modified string.

parse_file SCALAR

Parses the given file.

parse_fh FILEHANDLE

Parses the given file handle.

CAVEATS

Text::AutoLink internally uses HTML::TreeBuilder, so the resulting text may slightly be different from the input. In my experience this is usually not a problem, but if you are being strict it may bite you.
